Remote WOL (Wake on LAN)

Have more questions? Submit a request

To remotely wake a computer from sleep and establish a remote connection using the WOL feature:

  • Assign your computer a static IP
  • Configure port forwarding in your router to pass Port 9 to your PC’s new static IP
  • Turn on WOL (Wake on LAN) in your PC’s BIOS
  • Configure your network adapter’s power settings in Windows to allow it to wake the PC
  • Set up an external IP DNS solution (if your ISP does not provide you with a static IP)

Enter the destination target on Fing App (which is the IP address) and the WOL packet will be sent.
