SBS 2011 Wake on Lan

    General discussion

  • Just got new workstations and new server. Workstations running windows 7 and server running SBS2011.  We've used a nice little WOL GUI from nyxbull before our new installation. With all of our new equipment, WOL seems not to be working. I've tried every method on the depicus website and also hooked up one of the old (WOL Working) workstations and no dice with that either. Seems something must be blocked on the server.

    I'm not a network guy so any help you folks can offer would be greatly appreciated!

  • It may need to be rewritten to support IIS 7.

    It think someone built one to support SBS 2011 standard?  There's def one for Essentials.

  • Hi cfgcjm,


    Thanks for posting here.


    Is there any problem on running SBS components ?

    Not sure how did you configure this third party program on new SBS host, but it really seems some misconfigurations on it, have you also consult with their support service for acquiring a proper way to set this application up ?

  • You can try RemoteStartup 2011, it is in production since March 2011. It comes with a simple setup.

    The end user has no extra interaction, RemoteStartup wakes the client PC automagically.

    Download it from here:

    Also available RemoteStartup 2011 for Microsoft Small Business Server 2011 Essentials.

    And of course versions for SBS 2008 and SBS 2003.

    Best Regards,
