Turning off and on client machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I'm running Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 Enterprise both 64bit version in Virtual Box.

    I want to try the Wake On Lan feature to turn off and then on the Win7 machine from the server machine.

    But on the Win7 machine I can't enable the feature from the network device (I can't check the box).

    Is that something limited by running it on the Virtual Box?

    Or how can I try to turn off and on the client machine from server not using WOL?

    Thanks for any help.

  • From what I can find, WOL is not supported by VirtualBox.

    If you'd like to remotely restart or shut down the computer, you can use the Shutdown command from command prompt, or if you run Shutdown -i, you will be given a GUI for the shutdown application.

    Hope this helps..

  • Thanks for the reply.

    So if I run my server on Virtual Box and try to turn my desktop (real PC) on and off how can I do that?
