For the Wake-on-LAN function to be used, the host computer has to fully support (via BIOS) APM (Advanced Power Management) or ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface), and either of these also must be activated. Additionally, the host computer must be supplied with power even when switched off.

 

Click on the Wake-on-LAN  button and the WAKE-ON-LAN Manager will pop up, which in its original state has no entries. All entries in the Wake-on-LAN Manager remain stored until they are manually deleted.

Version 2

Existing devices can also be added to the Wake-on-LAN Manager via the Network scanner

Start a network scan within the required IP address range via the  Button. All network stations found will be shown. Highlight the entries you wish to add to the Wake-on-LAN manager. It is possible to highlight more than one entry, thus adding several network stations. With a right mouse-click on the selected entries a small context menu will pop up.

 

Network scanner

 

To add the selected network stations to the Wake-on-LAN manager, confirm the SAVE MAC ADDRESS(ES) TO WAKE-ON-LAN LIST menu item.

 

Friendly name

The Wake-on-LAN function uses the MAC addresses of devices. Because this MAC address, albeit unique, is hard ot remember, a FRIENDLY NAME can be allocated at the Thin Client device for the host computer, making it easier to identify the latter. This "friendly name" is only available and visible at the local Thin Client where this "friendly name" has been defined.

You may either create a "friendly name" or change an existing one.

 

Version 1:

Call up the Network scanner and initiate a network scan. Select the entry of the network station to which you wish to allocate a "friendly name" and click on it with the right mouse button. The following context menu will pop up:

 

Now select menu item ASSIGN A FRIENDLY NAME TO THIS MAC ADDRESS . The following dialogue will pop up:

 

Input field

 

In the FRIENDLY NAME OR COMMENT input field you can now enter the name for this network station. For an example of a "friendly name" allocation, go to top.

 

Version 2

It is also possible to define a "friendly name" via the Wake-on-LAN manager without having to carry out a network scan, provided the network station in question has already been entered into the Wake-on-LAN manager. Select the entry of the network station to which you wish to allocate a "friendly name" and click on it with the right mouse button. The following dialogue will pop up:
