Wake on Lan improvements

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hello,

it would be nice if the Wake on Lan (WoL) feature of the android version of RDM is improved with the following feature:

1) Possibility to define a different broadcast IP address for each session (RDP, VNC, etc.) like in the desktop version of RDM;
2) Possibility to use an address/hostname/dynamic-dns instead of an IP address and resolve it to get the IP;
3) Possibility to send multiple consecutive packet instead of a single one (this would be nice also on the desktop versione).

Thanks

Regards.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

1) We will add it to our todo list
2) We are already resolving the host name. Unfortunately, Android does not always handle the resolving very well.
This is why we suggest adding the domain information to your hostname. For example, you can use machine1.domainname instead of machine1.
This should improve the resolving.
3) The packet is already sent 3 times (Android and Windows).

Hi,

regarding point 2 it is not possibile to insert an address (for example test.no-ip.org) on the WoL broadcast IP address found under "Settings-->Network Settings--> Wake on LAN broadcast IP address" it return this error: "Invalid wake up on LAN IP address".

Hi,

Generally the broadcast IP address corresponds to a local broadcasting address. Do you use another software that uses the format you have specified?

Hi,

If you want to perform a remote Wake on Lan (over internet), it is useful to use a dynamic dns/address instead of IP if your internet line doesn't have a static IP address.


Then a properly configured router will take care of forwarding the WoL packet received over internet to 192.168.1.255.

Generally a Wake on Lan software allow to insert an address/dynamic IP as broadcast IP; the desktop version of RDM too.

Hi,

Thanks for the update.

Point 1 has already been implemented and it will be available in the next release.

As for point 2, we should be able to implement the necessary changes for the next release.

Once implemented, we could also send you a special pre-release version that you could test.

If you are interested, you can send me an email at: ndufour@devolutions.net
and we will send you a link to download the application once everything is implemented.

Best Regards,

The problem associated with invalid IP address is occurring due to configuration issue of the router, I have managed to fix my NetGear Router Configuration Issue but still facing IP-address related issues.
