What is needed for Wake on LAN?


In order for Wake on LAN to work your hardware needs to have support for WOL and it has to be enabled in the BIOS of your computer systems (refer to your owners manual for specifics).

Next, your router/switch has to allow UPD port 7 to pass through.

Finally, the Lieberman tool has to have successfully talked to the machine in the past so that it will know what the MAC address of the machine is.
