Enter any host name or ip address you would like to wake up (Perform a WOL - Wake On Lan - i.e. yourhost.dyndns.org or 188.8.131.52)
Wake on LAN (WOL, sometimes WoL) is an Ethernet computer networking standard that allows a computer to be turned on or woken up remotely by a network message.
Wake-on-LAN is not restricted to LAN (Local area network) traffic. It works with all network traffic, including Internet traffic.
The general process of waking a computer up remotely over a network connection can be explained thus:
The target computer is shut down (Sleeping, Hibernating or Soft Off, i.e. ACPI state G1 or G2), with power reserved for the network card. The network card listens for a specific packet, called the "Magic Packet." The Magic Packet is broadcast on the broadcast address for that particular subnet (or an entire LAN, though this requires special hardware and/or configuration). When the listening computer receives this packet, it checks it for the correct information, and then switches on and boots if the Magic Packet is valid.
The magic packet is sent on the data link or OSI-2 layer and broadcast to all NICs (within the network of the broadcast address). Therefore, it does not matter whether the remote host has a fixed or dynamic IP-address (OSI-3 layer).
In order for Wake on LAN to work, parts of the network interface need to stay on. This increases the standby power used by the computer. If Wake on LAN is not needed, turning it off may reduce power consumption while the computer is off but still plugged in.
The w3dt Wake On Lan tool is based off code by Krenn Wallner.
