Wake on LAN, now on the App Store under Utilities!

A iPhone - iPod touch application that sends a WOL packet to a specific computer via the internet or LAN

Video Demo


  • Add as many computers as you want
  • Works via the Internet
  • LAN Broadcast
  • Name: Can be anything you want here.
  • MAC:


    Go to START, RUN, CMD, and type IPCONFIG /ALL.
    Find the PHYSICAL ADDRESS for the ethernet adapter.

    Mac OS X

    System Preferences -> Network -> Ethernet -> Configure ->Ethernet -> Ethernet ID
    Enter this address in the format xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
  • Host: Enter the IP address assigned to your computer by your ISP or a DNS name if you have one set up. To see your WAN IP address, go to http://checkip.dyndns.org. If you have a dynamic IP and your router supports dyndns.org then create an accout by Clicking here
  • Port: Usually you use port 7. You'll have to login to your router and forward the incoming requests for port 7 (UDP) to the IP address of the computer you want to turn on.
  • LAN Broadcast: If your phone is connected to the same network the computer is on, turn LAN Broadcast ON. If you are using Edge on your phone or are connected to a different network, turn this setting OFF.

Please note

In order for this to work via the internet your router needs to be able to foward the magic packet from a port (e.g. 7 UDP) to the LAN IP of the computer you want to wake up.

Also it only works using an ethernet cable, it will NOT work through a wireless card on the computer you want to wake up!
