- 2How do I enable Wake-On-LAN
There can be several steps to get WOL working: - In the BIOS of the Target machine, enable the option that says "Remote Wake Up", "Wake On Lan", "Power Up On PCI/PCIE Devices", "WOL in S4/S5" or something similar. - In Windows (or any other OS), go to your Network Adapter Settings and select your primary network adapter. - Click on "Properties" and in the next window "Configure". - Under "Power Management" make sure WOL is enabled. - Under "Advanced" can also be a Wake-On-Lan option, which needs to be enabled. - If you don't see any WOL-Opions, try updating the driver of the network-adapter. - Restart the system and test if WOL works. Under "Advanced" can also be a Wake-On-Lan option, which needs to be enabled. If you don't see any WOL-Opions, try updating the driver of the network-adapter. Restart the system and test if WOL works.
- 1When starting a device via WOL, it still says "Monitoring..." even if the device is already powered on
The answer to this question is the same as above. Enable the Ping-Reply in the firewall-settings.
- 1The Device always reports "Power-State: Off", even if it is turned on
The Power-Check works by sending a Ping to the target device. On some devices, especially servers, the ping-reply is disabled by default in the firewall. To enable this option, do the following: - Press Window + R to open the "Run" Window. - Type "wf.msc" and click [Enter] to open the "Windows Firewall with Advanced Security" screen. - On the left, click on "Inbound Rules". - On every Rule that says "File and Printer Sharing (Echo Request - ICMPv4-In)", right-click and select Enable Rule.
- 3When trying to install the programm, Windows-Defender pops up and stops me from installing the program.
The reason for this is the new trust-system of windows-defender that came with windows 10, it blocks any programms that don't have enough "reputation", which a program gains reputation by getting downloaded by many individuals. Therefor a new program with no reputation gets marked as "Potentially harmfull." To install it anyway, click on "More Info" and then on "Run anyway". Alternatively, you can just download the source-code and compile the program yourself.
