Wake-on-LAN

Connect to your offline remote computers with ease

November 25, 2020

The ability to connect and access our computers from anywhere, anytime, for maintaining business continuity is critical, today. Remote access solutions such as RemotePC help us achieve this and much more. Let's say you are working from home and need to send an important file to your associate but the file is stored on your office computer which is offline. How do you send the file then? Don't worry because RemotePC helps you not only connect to your remote computers but also wake them up from the offline mode using the Wake-on-LAN function.

How does Wake-on-LAN in RemotePC work

Wake-on-LAN lets you turn on your offline remote desktop in no time. You can even connect and access any of your remote desktop that is in offline mode. All you need to do is, Enable Wake-on-LAN in the RemotePC application and add a mediator computer. When you try to turn on an offline computer, RemotePC will send a message to the mediator computer which in turn wakes up your offline computer.

What are some of the key features of RemotePC?

  • Instant access - Provide temporary access for your computer to your associate sitting in a different office just by sharing a unique one-time Access ID and Key to collaborate and work on projects / assignments.
  • Always-ON Remote Access - Configure your computer with a unique Personal Key to stay connected from anywhere, anytime with an active internet connection.
  • Whiteboard - Collaborate with your colleagues by drawing on the remote screen during a session, to better explain your viewpoints.

  • Cross-platform compatible - Remotely access your computer from a PC, Mac, Linux, iOS or Android devices, as RemotePC is platform-independent.
