I mentioned recently about wantint to be able to wake up various machines in my house remotely. My colleague introduced me to AutoExit for Windows Home Server
which works a treat. However, logging onto the Windows Home Server console is a bit, well, slow.
So, now that I do quite a bit of remote desktop
to my development machine I want a quicker, easier way of waking it up.
The solution was a .bat file that uses the very handy WoLCmd command line executable from www.depicus.com
. There's also a GUI, an ASP and a COM version. Very handy.
They even provide the .NET source to Wake-on-Lan yourself here
Anyway, I simply botched a bat file together next to my downloaded copy of WolCmd and created a shortcut to the batch file on my desktop. Here's the script:
wolcmd.exe <MAC-ADDRESS-HERE> <IP-ADDRESS-HERE> 255.255.255.0 7
