SolarWinds Wake-On-Lan Review

SolarWinds Wake-On-Lan Review

There are lots of Wake-On-Lan options but you can never really go wrong with a SolarWinds product.

When it comes to Wake-On-Lan products, less is more and this Free SolarWinds Wake-On-Lan tool does just what you need, no more, no less. The program sends a “magic packet” to the target machine on a network, letting it know it’s time to wake up.

If the WOL feature is enabled in the BIOS, the system will startup as if someone pressed the power button.
