"Can turn on and switch off PCS over a LAN"

January 08, 2011  |  By Juxtapose

 |  Version: Wake On LAN 1

Pros

Very simple to actually use, simple GUI an end user could pick up, can switch on and off pcs over a lan like it says, its free, no spyware or any of that junk, neat little program.

Cons

Windows 7 needs a little bit of tinkering to allow this to work, Would be nice if the installer for this configured Windows 7 for it to work. Has some difficulty on server machines also.

Summary

Neat little program for It pros to switch Windows client Operating system computers on and off via the network.

"Works well, but needs more features."

December 17, 2010  |  By Abyss24

 |  Version: Wake On LAN 1

Pros

This is a great light weight app that can resolves MAC addresses from Known IP addresses and it can tell you if the target system is on or off. Turning on a system from another location on the LAN works reliably.

Cons

What the program lacks is the ability to save and and recall settings for multiple machines. Also, it would be nice to have the ability to run the app from a command line allowing systems to be powered on from a batch script and / or shortcut.

Summary

Overall, this is program works great and having the ability to tell if a machine has been turned on while not physically at the target machine is a great feature. Another great feature is resolving MAC addresses from a known IP address on the LAN. However, it could use a couple of other additions like command line interface and saved settings for more than one machine where you can associate the Mac Address with a more user friendly name and select the machines from a list.

"Partially works"

November 19, 2008

 |  Version: Wake On LAN 1

Pros

It basically does what the menu's state it will do. Get MAC, Power On system, etc

Cons

What it didn't do was tell me the computer was ON after I turned it ON. The computer actually came up, but the program said it failed to come up.

Summary

I like the product and will use it, but it disappointed me in that it has the above fallacy.

"lacks search by pc name and lacks history or saved list"

July 11, 2008  |  By theirish1

 |  Version: Wake On LAN 1

Pros

This software works at the most basic level of turning on a PC.

Cons

I have a number of PCs on the network which i'd like the software to list and maintain. That way I wouldn't have to get the details of each pc, each time I want to wake it up. I also would love to be able to just type a pc name in and have it find the ip address.

"Requires Installation, Other alternatives don't"

November 18, 2007  |  By Jedi Enforcer

 |  Version: Wake On LAN 1

Cons

Requires Installation!

Others like REMOTE Wake on LAN 1 & WOL 1.0.3 that are also available for download from CNET DOWNLOAD.COM are self contained portable small executables that require no installation.
