    "Works well, but needs more features."

    December 17, 2010  |   By Abyss24

    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.
