    Wake on LAN packets


    by brianmilke ·

    If I set up my firewall properly, and do not allow unauthorized packets through, would Microsoft still be able to get a “Wake on LAN” packet through and turn on my computer remotely?

      if you correctly forward the port number to the computer you want to turn on. Is the computer your going to turn on going to have a firewall on it also?

      just asking… what WOL app are you using? i use “FUSION WOL” from time to time.

      make sure works on lan first

      never understood why someone would waste their time sitting around thinking this stuff up.

      some people just never grow up…
