How to: Using Wake-On-Lan

Your computer is in the office “sleeping”, and now you need to close this month’s payments… No problem, BeAnywhere works that out for you: the new wake-On-Lan feature allows you to wake any computer remotely. For that, you’ll need one of your network’s computers to be connected to the Internet with all of BeAnywhere’s components updated.

First, make sure that it meets these criteria:

  • The Computer is connected to an energy source and has an Ethernet connection.
  • The remote and local machines support Wake-On-Lan.
1- Update the Tech Console and Agent of the remote machines

  2. At the left of the Window, click on “Device Manager”.
  3. Find the sub-menu “Network Adapter” and right-click the correspondent adapter and select “Properties”.
  4. Go to the “Advanced” tab and enable the “Reactivation by Magic Packet” or “Wake-up on ARP/PING” (In other Windows versions, this option might be available in the energy management tab).

Possible names:
