Teamviewer Wake On Lan Mac Address Windows 10

Just download this: WakeOnLan.
It's freeware and do all work without the need to use external web sites.

Yeah, but it looks like that's for sleeping computers on the same LAN as the one you're currently on. This hint is more for people that want to wake up their Mac remotely via the Internet like if you wanted to access your home computer from the office or a friend's house but it's asleep.

So it seems.
But actually it works over the internet if you manually add the host with IP-Address and Ethernet-ID.
I use it for remotely waking an iMac behind a NAT that i have to access for screensharing.

Believe it or not, some people are forced to use a PC at work, and this solution won't work =( The poster's idea is good.
In /dev/null, no one can hear you scream

That's my problem as well.
But look, I found this: WOL Manager Professional

This does not work if you are behind an Airport router, even if you're hard wired via the ethernet port.
The Airport router does not forward the 'wake-up' packet.

If the router implements port forwarding correctly any old port shouldn't allow a WOL packet into the network (read big security hole). WOL is a UDP packet sent to port 9 and with a proper router you would need to forward UDP/9 to the system you want to wake up.

Actually, that's only partially true. A wake on lan frame can be embedded in any protocol and is nothing more than a specific stream of data. It's composed of 6 bytes 0xff followed by the MAC-address (ethernet address) repeated at least 16 times, ie

to wake a computer with the MAC-address 00:11:22:33:44:55. The first six bytes are for syncronization, and the rest identifies the computer. This can, as I said, be embedded in any protocol, or, for that matter, as a raw ethernet frame. UDP-packets seems to be the most common solution though, probably because it's simplicity.

Anyway, it ought be quite difficult to detect this kind of data stream (at least without false positives), and as far as I can tell, it's possible to insert a packet (ie TCP-packet) containing the magic string through a firewall. This, of course, may or may not be the case in the hint :)

My iBook is connected to the Internet wirelessly, but I wanted it off when I wasn't using it, too. What I do is leave the modem cable connected and enable 'wake on modem ring'. Then, when I want to wake the iBook up so I can SSH in to it, I ring my house.

You Sir (or Madam) are brilliant.
I've never been entirely comfortable with the thought of sending WOL packets across the Internet (particularly since the mechanism was really designed for intranets and lacks any form of authentication) except with a VPN router, but the idea of using a POTS ring just to wake a sleeping Mac is perfect!
Not only is the wakeup signal (ring) kept safely 'out of band' with the SSH connection itself, but I'm thinking it may even be possible to target the Mac so that it only wakes up when specifically selected. How? By using one of those 'comm-share' boxes that allows you to re-direct incoming calls/rings by sending a touch-tone sequence during the initial ring. (These boxes are often used to share an incoming line between a phone, answering machine, fax and modem)

OK..i just spent 3 or 4 hours trying to figure this remote wake up problem out. Timbuktu is useless without being able to wake up my sleeping office computer. It amazes me that a product that complex CAN NOT do this (i just called and confirmed this). It has to be nearly 100% of their users have this problem. Hell, that's what the program does is remote communication.
So about an hour ago I got this modem idea..and then saw this post. Hell, this is my next thing to do when I get back to the office: hook up my old phone line to the modem. Duh.
I have iChat running and can see if my computer wakes up or not :)

This is a great thread, but I was wondering if anyone knows how to make WOL work when you have OS X set to 'Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver' in the Security control panel. When the password setting is on, waking the machine just shows a login screen, and it quickly falls back asleep when I have no way of entering the password from my remote connection.
I feel like I shouldn't have to give up security just so I can wake the machine..

Any solution to the fall back asleep after 30 seconds when a password is set - besides no password or no sleep?

isnt your MAC address protection enough?

I'm currently running a few services from my computer for others to use, so I turned off automatic sleep altogether. I needed a similar level of client security, so I decided the best way to lock my computer was to go to the login window. I downloaded WinSwitch ( to create a shortcut to login window and Ciao ( to automatically go to login window after a period of inactivity. You can use this setup while leaving your computer awake or asleep with the same client security.
Here's the perl script that will send a correctly-formatted UDP packet that was alluded to in the original hint:

I was successful in waking my G5 PowerMac, but neither of my iBooks appear to respond (even after shutting down the firewall, setting the correct options, plugging in the adapter, etc.)

is it this perl script that would let you build a wake function on your own website(like dslreport, just with fixed addys in a single button) and if so. any hints on how to incoporate it in a html/flash site?

Online Wake-on-LAN Services

Here are some websites that allow sending magic packets to boot up a computer over the internet. They are free services that can be used by anyone.

6. Wake-On-LAN Online

This webpage is able to send the required packet data to your computer over the internet. A useful feature is the scheduler that allows you to send the magic packet on a specific day and time up to a week in advance.

Enter the external IP address and MAC address of the target computer into the boxes. Then press “Wake Up my PC!” The service seems to use both ports 9 and 7 by default but you can add your own with “:[port]” after the IP address. Multiple MAC and IP addresses can be used if you separate them with commas.

Visit Wake-On-LAN Online

7. Depicus Wake on LAN over the Internet

In addition to the Windows tools from Depicus, they also have a page on their website that can send the magic packet over the internet to your computer.

The external IP Address and MAC Address of your computer is required. The subnet mask and password boxes can be left alone if you have no specific need to change them. The page also says the port can be left at the default of 4343 but we got an error if the box was empty. Port 9, 7, 4343 or anything more specific if you wish is fine.

Wake-on-LAN from the Command Line or PowerShell

Using the command line or PowerShell to send Wake-on-LAN packets to another computer can be quite useful for business, professional users, in batch scripts and to make desktop shortcuts.

8. Wake On Lan Command Line (WolCmd)

This tool is another entry in our list by Depicus and is a simple command line tool to send the Wake-on-LAN signal. The syntax is quite simple.

WolCmd [MAC address] [IP address] [Subnet mask] [Port]

An example would look like this:

wolcmd 26-63-A4-79-B8-12 9

The MAC address, IP address and subnet are required but the port will default to 7 if you don’t supply one.

Download Wake On Lan Command Line (WolCmd)

Another useful command line tool we found was simply called WOL. It additionally allows you to supply a password and a custom subnet.

9. Send-WOL PowerShell Script

There are a few PowerShell scripts around that can send a magic packet and this one is hosted on the Microsoft Technet Script Center. Download the script, open it and add the argument for the computer(s) you wish to wake.

Send-WOL -mac [MAC address] -ip [IP address] -port [port]

Save the script and execute it from PowerShell or the command line. Only the MAC address is truly required, the default port will be 9 if you don’t supply your own.

Download Send-WOL PowerShell Script

Use Wake-on-LAN to Start a Computer From your Smartphone

If you are unable to send the magic packet to your PC from another computer, an alternative option is sending it from another device like a smartphone or tablet. There are loads of apps around and the Android app we’ll look at is free, popular and does the job quite nicely.

10. Wake On Lan for Android

This app is quite easy to use because if the computer to start up remotely is switched on and available on the local network, you can find it automatically. Just press the add button and select the device from the list. It’s IP and MAC addresses will be added so you don’t have to do anything else. If you are connecting from outside the LAN, replace the local IP with the external IP or add a new connection manually.

All you have to do is press one of the devices in the bookmarks list to start the computer remotely. A handy function is the ability to add a widget to your home screen that can send the packet data to a selected device just by pressing the icon. By default the magic packet is sent three times, it can be changed up or down in the app settings.

Download Wake On Lan for Android

Test Wake-on-LAN is Working in Windows

If Wake-on-LAN isn’t working or you just want to test to see if the remote computer is receiving the necessary data, try using Wake on Lan Monitor. It’s another tool from Depicus and can be used to test if the magic packet is reaching the target computer.

Launch the tool on the computer you want to send the WOL signal to, set the required port and press Start. Then send a Wake-on-LAN packet from another computer using one of the options above. If the data is received, the tool will display it in the window. If you receive nothing there is something in your set up preventing the packet from being sent.

Note that different programs default to different ports when sending the magic packet. For instance, FUSION WakeUp on Lan and WakeMeOnLan default to port 40000 while WakeOnLANx defaults to port 7. If you are not required to set a port in the program, make sure you know what its default is during testing.

Download Wake on LAN Monitor

Make Sure Your Computer is Wake-on-LAN Ready

To enable the Wake-on-LAN feature in the BIOS, in addition to an obvious option which is usually named something like “Wake on LAN”, you may have to enable an option called “PCI Devices power on” in the ACPI configuration and power management settings.

You also need to make sure the LAN driver in Windows has the WOL feature enabled. Right click on (My) Computer > Manage > Device Manager > Network adapters. Double click on your Ethernet controller and look in the Advanced tab for “Wake on LAN”, “Wake from shutdown”, “Wake on Magic Packet” or similar.

Make sure it’s enabled. Also, go into the Power Management tab and tick “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”, “Allow this device to wake the computer”, and optionally “Only allow magic packets to wake the computer”.

How you can wake up on LAN your PC if you’re not in the same network?

HAL9000 Admin9 months ago

Page 2 might help you with that, those options can WOL over the internet which is essentially the same thing.


this is “8 programms to use wake-on-lan to turn your computer on” describing exactly ONE way (WOL) – it is not 8 ways to turn a computer on … grrr :-P

HAL9000 Admin1 year ago

We called it 8 ways to… because there are not 8 programs or 8 websites, but a mixture. And you only have so many characters for a title.


turn on and wake up is 2 completely different things. thats what he meant. Its clickbait in essence xD

HAL9000 Admin10 months ago

Wake on LAN will “turn on” your computer from off, wake up brings the computer out of sleep/standby. Two different things but “wake” is used for both.

Also, the commenter above did not mean the difference between turn on and wake, he was unhappy that the title says “8 ways…” when he believes there’s only one way mentioned.


The PC that I wanted to start up has to be on Wi-Fi due to practicality. what I did was get one of those remote controlled smart outlets and set the BIOS to default to power on. I have a UPS and a gas generator so I’m not going to lose power to that PC otherwise. I just shut down the PC as normal then cut the power for about 30 seconds when I want to start it up.

itay2 years ago

if the power to the network adapter is off while the computer is off, you need to be able to send a broadcast to it to wake it up.
in order to do that, an always on 3rd party device is needed that is in your home network like a tablet or old phone.
for that i wrote an app called wol proxy for android which can do the broadcast for you and still allow you to wake the PC:

Hi Raymond, this is really helpful. I was about to get a timer hardware to switch my office computer on and off at set timings. My only problem was I need to turn it on at times when the hardware is set to “off”. Have racked my brains over this…until I read what you’ve posted. A million thanks!

Hi, Ray
You are a great man.


WHAT A NICE THING!!!! YOU JUST SAVE ME LOT WORK HOURS, because someone have lost the keys of the server’s room, I had to work remotly, but, for a mistake turned off the server, but, I was able to turn it on again with the software Fusion WOL, thanks a lot for your advise.

Nice article, I already use VNC to control my machine but sometimes I forget to leave my PC on. This will help a lot, the only thing I need now is a decent router which supports dynDNS.


Very cool!!! I used the wake up from the internet entered my home IP and MAC addy from my office and Voila! My home computer turned on. I used a remote support proggy to turn computer off and access everything THANKS!!!!!
