Basic Features of WakeOnLan Free

Wake-on-LAN operations can be initiated manually or scheduled for automatic execution at the defined data/time. The Free edition allows creating of 2 scheduled WOL tasks. A single WOL operation can wake up 5 network PCs maximum. The program automates all steps of Wake-on-LAN from detecting network computers to automatic MAC addresses detection and sending WOL packets using different delivery methods.

This edition works as a Windows program that should work in an active Windows user session to execute scheduled tasks. If the PC is rebooted or Windows users logs off the scheduled tasks aren't executed. This edition creates own database with the WOL configuration for every Windows user. Different users cannot use the same database.

Advanced Features of WakeOnLan Professional

The Professional edition of the program doesn't limit the number of created Wake-on-LAN tasks, so you can create as many tasks as you need and schedule them for automatic execution. There is no limitation for a number of target PCs in a WOL task, so you can wake up all computers in your network with a single mouse click.

This edition works as a Windows service that continues execution of scheduled tasks even if you reboot a PC where the program is installed or log off from Windows. Different Windows users work with the shared database that stores WOL tasks and execution results. Two Windows users can work with the database concurrently.

Wake on LAN Features for Corporate Networks

EMCO WakeOnLan is an utility designed to be used in networks of any scale and it is optimized to operate with a large number of PCs. It includes features that are targeted at simplifying Wake on LAN operations and automating WOL tasks in corporate networks.

WOL Tasks and Their Scheduling

The program allows creating Wake-on-LAN tasks that include WOL settings and definition of target PCs. Tasks are used for a quick WOL execution on demand using previously configured settings and also for an automatic scheduled execution on schedule. Scheduled tasks can be managed through intuitive visual interface.


Query-Based Wake-on-LAN Targets

The program allows configuring static and dynamic sets of target PCs. You can use a query to automatically select target PCs. The query is executed during the execution of a WOL operation and reports PCs that meets the configured conditions. As the result, you don't need to update WOL targets for tasks if your network structure was changed.

Automated MAC Detection

The program is able to automatically detect MAC addresses of network PCs to use the collected information to generate WOL packets. Depending on the network configuration the program uses different MAC address detection methods. The program also can extract MAC addresses from Microsoft DHCP - it works even if network PCs are turned off.


Customizable WOL Settings

Depending on your network environment you can configure the application to send Wake on LAN packets using different transmission methods. You can select broadcast, unicast, directed broadcast and Internet transmission and specify port used for WOL. You can configure these settings globally or set individual settings for tasks in the Professional edition.

Advanced PC Power Management Utility

EMCO Remote Shutdown - you can use this tool to automate PC power management across the local network. It can execute Wake on LAN, shutdown, reboot and other management operations on demand or automatically on schedule.
