Tools -- WOL

Can the WOL tool be made to wake PC's by DNS name also? I use it for my home PC and hate it when my IP changes and need to delete entries and add the new one. I would just like something more permanent. Thanks

Perfect! I just noticed the change. Thanks Justin and crew. Works perfect except it doesn't go to the "On its way" screen when you click on it but who cares, BIG THANKS again.

I thought it was working but it's not. When I click on a DNS name link it just stays on the WOL screen and does not go to the "On its way" screen and nothing happens. I created a straight IP link and it works.

I think I found the issue - with re-using an old call sign rather than direct first-time use.

Thanks Justin. It's flawless.
