This is my 1st post, could anyone tell me how to upload an image and use it in the post? Thanks.

Here are my 2c
I use the windows utility (shown above) but you can use any of them. Here are some brief description of each field:
: 00-00-00-00-00-00 the dash is important, the is the machine you want to wake it up. Of course it needs to be setup to do so in the bios if the motherboard support it.
: your public router IP or lan IP (if local). If you have a public IP I suggest use one of the dynamic IP tracking system. I use http://www.dyndns.org
. It's free, btw.
: 255.255.255.255 or 255.255.255.0 one of these two should work.
: Internet or Local Subnet
Remote Port Number
: a port opened on your computer (if you have firewall) or on your router (need to forward it to your destination PC). Just keep in mind to use UDP
with port because magic packet is a UDP packet.
After everyting is done, click on "Wake Me Up"
, in a short while your computer should be up and running. If you have VNC installed, you can use it now.
