Wake on LAN-you can boot your computer when you are outside
Because I have two PCs at home, one Windows 10 and one Linux CentOS 7, I don’t know if the machine is too old or there is a power problem. Sometimes it hangs up suddenly. When I went home, I saw him resting and shut down there. While waiting to press the boot button, I searched for information on the Internet and found WOL (Wake On Lan) about the method of booting on the Internet, so I wanted to give it a try, and then I set it up. In fact, it is not difficult. One problem, his environment is executed under the LAN, but if you are outside, you have to use some other methods. If you have a router at home that supports the DMZ function, you can set the external IP to the internal IP. But there is another problem. If you don’t have a fixed IP, it won’t work. Later, I used a useless mobile phone to do remote WOL (Wake On Lan). The information is as follows.
- Settings on the WOL host (Windows 10 / CentOS 7)
- Teamviewer HOST
- Wake On Lan (Android / Free)
