The AWIECO WakeOnLAN add-in for Windows Home Server 2011 and Small Business Server 2011 Essentials is a free and useful add-in, which has the ability to remotely turn on a computer. It enables the Server to start up every computer attached to your network. You can also power off a computer out of the Launchpad.


Take advantage of the functions of the WakeOnLAN PRO version to give users individual rights to turn computers on. With the integrated Scheduler you can plan to wake up a computer at a specified time or on recurring basis. Moreover, you can easily wake up computers with the Windows Phone 7 app AWIECO WakeOnLAN Pro. This app also supports Live Tiles for faster access.

The gadget on the WHS or SBS web-interface shows a list of all available and connected computers within your network and provides the possibility to start them up from any location inside your network or via internet, by just one mouse click. You can add further computers to your network manually by entering the MAC address or even delete them. The add-in automatically recognises if a computer is already turned on or if it is booting up.

How it works

When the remote network adapter receives a "Magic Packet" created for its unique MAC address, the network adapter alerts the computer to power on, which is comparable with the manual pressing of the power button. When the computer is shut down, its network adapter is still receiving power, and waiting to receive a “Magic Packet“ within the network. A requirement for this function is the wake on LAN support of your network adapter and the enabled Wake On LAN option in the computer’s BIOS settings.
