About Wake On LAN

Wake On LAN (WoL) is a powerful tool that allows users to remotely turn on a computer over a network connection. By utilizing Fusion WOL (Wake On LAN), users can take advantage of this functionality to conveniently wake up a remote PC through a simple and intuitive web interface.

Key Features

1. Remote PC Power On
Fusion WOL enables users to remotely power on a computer using its IP address. If the IP address of the remote PC is previously stored in the cache, users can easily wake it up with a simple click. If not, users can manually enter the MAC address of the remote PC to initiate the wakeup process. This feature provides convenience and flexibility, allowing users to remotely access their PCs without physical interaction.

2. Host State Checking
Fusion WOL allows users to check the state of a specific host by sending a ping package to the desired IP address or hostname. This feature provides real-time information on the availability and responsiveness of a host, helping users to identify potential connectivity issues or determine if a remote PC is online and ready to be powered on.

3. Free Distribution and User Responsibility
Fusion WOL is freely distributed, offering its powerful features at no cost. However, it is important to note that the responsibility for the usage and consequences lies entirely with the users. While Fusion WOL empowers users to wake up remote PCs, it is the user's responsibility to ensure legal and authorized usage of the software.

4.Limitations and Soft Shutdown
Fusion WOL has some limitations due to the Wake On LAN protocol. It only works on machines within the local network and cannot be used on PCs connected to networks like the Internet. Additionally, to successfully wake up a remote PC, it must have been previously shut down gracefully, as opposed to forcibly powering off by pressing the physical power button for a few seconds.

In summary, Wake On LAN (WoL) is a valuable tool that enables remote power-on functionality for computers over a network connection. With Fusion WOL's user-friendly web interface, users can easily wake up remote PCs using their IP address or MAC address. The ability to check the state of hosts through ping packages adds an additional layer of convenience and network monitoring. However, users should be aware of the software's limitations and be responsible for its usage. Fusion WOL is a free distribution, making it a cost-effective solution for remotely waking up PCs within a local network.
