How do I enable Wake-on-LAN on my server?

Problem description:

  • I can power down my media server, but how do I power up?
  • How can I remotely start (power up) my media server?

Power up of a WATCHPAX or WATCHMAX is accomplished via the industry standard Wake-on-LAN (WoL) command. The Wake-on-LAN function is by default enabled on all WATCHPAX models. 

You need to know the MAC address of the WATCHPAX network interface to send the WoL command. For more information on obtaining the MAC address, see IP power down.
