Watchnet wake up non watch out pc on lan

Recommended Posts

Hi Wilson - Wake-On-Lan is not a Watchout thing, it's a standard. It must be enabled on the bios of your machine. The WOL packet or 'Magic Packet' is 6 bytes of 255 followed by 16 instances of the machine's MAC address, UDP broadcast to port 9.

You can send this out from WATCHOUT, e.g. a special aux timeline, or through WATCHNET where you would need to add this in the devices section.

I'm trying to achieve that using aux timeline but I do not find the proper message to send. 

The mac address of the computer that I'm trying to wake up is 1C-EE-C9-01-52-11 its IP 192.168.100.101 its subnet 255.255.255.0

shouldn't it be " wolcmd 1ceec9015211 192.168.100.101 255.255.255.0 7" send by a string cue in udp on a string output with the correct network address and port ?

No.

The network adaptor of your PC does not know it's IP address as long as the OS is not running. Therefore you need to send a "Magic Packet" as a broadcast (UDP) into the network.

Usually it would look like this:

FF FF FF FF FF FF 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11 1C EE C9 01 52 11  0D

This needs to be sent as hex code to either the IP address of the device or to the broadcast address of your network which would proabably be 192.168.100.254 in this case.
