There are two different WOL Portals available - boths FREE
In order to optimally support the different WOL requirements of our customers, there are two different Wake On LAN portals, both of which are hosted on the customer's own intranet.
If configured correctly, WOL allows computers to be woken up from sleep mode (standby / hibernation) as well as computers that have been completely shut down.
The WOL process is handled in the background by the required Auto Shutdown Manager Server.
The Basic WOL Portal is a very simple portal, suitable for non-critical use in the intranet with few users.
The Advanced WOL Portal is a more complex WOL portal which authenticates users using Active Directory and only allows assigned computers to be woken up.
Both WOL portals are based on Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) and serve as a supplement to an existing Auto Shutdown Manager infrastructure. Both can be used by our customers free of charge.
The Advanced WOL Portal
To be able to use this portal, a user must first authenticate himself with a valid domain user name and password.
In addition, the WOL Portal administrator must first assign and activate the users and the desired computers.
Now users can simply wake up the computers assigned to them with a click:
The Advanced WOL portal software incl. the installation guide is available free of charge and can be downloaded here.
The Basic WOL Portal
This basic WOL Portal is typically operated withn the company's intranet. In the simplest case, users only need the portal address and the FQDN name of their workstation.
The Basic WOL portal software incl. the installation guide is available free of charge and can be downloaded here.
The administrator is free at any time to centrally allow or disallow portal based wake-up calls.
A password can be specified for the wake-up call.
Computers that should not be woken up via the portal can be blocked using an exception list. Individual computers can be listed, or REGEX-based expressions can also be used. More details and examples can be found in the instructions included with the download.
