The Role of Wake-on-LAN Software and How It Works

TeamViewer for IT Admins

Wake-on-LAN capabilities enable you to turn on computers remotely all across the world, without any onsite assistance. Whether you are offering technical support to customers or managing a company IT system, the freedom this feature affords ensures a smoother service for your business. Implementing critical updates can take some time and has the potential to disrupt regular work patterns severely. However, a WoL tool allows you to log into machines at your convenience to avoid disrupting employee workflows and run important updates during low activity periods. Should any problems occur within the system, Wake-on-LAN can be used to turn on a PC remotely in order to address the issue without any delay.

Wake-on-LAN is a protocol made possible by the sending of so-called magic packets from a client to a remote device. These packets are able to locate the specific computer you intend to wake using its network card’s MAC address (a media access control address). The only requirement for operating Wake-on-LAN over the internet is that the remote device is connected to a power source and is connected to the internet via a network cable. This way, most modern PCs are able to keep their Ethernet card on an alert for arriving packets while in a low power state, or even powered off. A large majority of PCs support Wake-on-LAN, even if it is not necessarily advertised.

Powerful Remoting with the Wake-on-LAN Tool

TeamViewer for IT Supporter

TeamViewer’s ability to power on a device located anywhere is a particularly useful feature for IT admins, remote workers, and technical support staff alike. When paired with remote desktop functionality, WoL is made even more powerful, allowing not only unlimited access to unattended devices but full immersive control of them too. This all-in-one service ensures companies can offer the highest level of technical support with the least disruption to business operations. This powerful combination allows IT experts to control a remote device with the touch of a button, or even from a smartphone app.

Wake-on-LAN is a cross-compatible protocol that can be used with TeamViewer on Windows, macOS, and Linux devices. This versatility ensures that any technical support offered using WoL is consistent across machines; no matter your customers’ or clients’ preferred operating systems, you can move seamlessly between them. The initial set up process may vary slightly depending on the operating system you use, but each requires only a few simple steps to get started. In addition, TeamViewer lets you wake a computer remotely from your smartphone or tablet, so that even when on the go and following a busy schedule, nothing can stop you from being connected.

Advantages of Wake-on-LAN for Modern Businesses

The Wake-on-LAN tool offers companies great flexibility and peace of mind: whenever a remote computer unexpectedly enters sleep mode, you can have absolute confidence that you will still be able to connect to it. This means that projects run on time and there are fewer unforeseen obstacles. Furthermore, the Wake-on-LAN utility enables you to make significant cost savings. With the ability to quickly power machines on and off, you can drastically reduce electricity usage by ensuring computers are completely shut down when not in use.

The WoL settings for all of the devices on a network can be centrally managed with TeamViewer, so the process is simple to carry out. Wake-on-LAN also ensures that fewer people are required to fulfil tasks: computers can be completely unattended before you connect, meaning no member of staff needs to be onsite to interact with the device for you.
