Wake my PC remotely

IP address or dns name: (UDP port 9 must not be blocked by your firewall)
MAC address: (12 hex characters)


Modern PCs may support wake-on-lan (wikipedia link) if you are using an ethernet chipset that supports this. You may have to enable WOL in your BIOS or Network card BIOS. Your PC turns itself on when it receives a special packet. If you are on DSL, it may be useful to wake your PC up from a remote location. All you need do is specify your IP address, and your MAC address. These can be found by using winipcfg command for windows, or ifconfig for Linux. Some Macs display the MAC address on a sticker.

If you are logged in, we will also remember your targets so you can repeat the WOL packet generation with one click.
