I have a PC connected to the Internet via a Corega routerI have been trying to wake up my PC from a remote location sending a WOL magic packet over the Internet.
In my router I have added the following firewall service:
Name: WOL Type: UDP Start port: 5850 Finish port: 5850
Then I have added the following incoming firewall rule:
Service: I have selected the service I have previously created Action: allow always Comment: Wake On Lan Send to LAN Server: I have selected my PC (it is the only one connected to the router) WAN users: Any Log: Always
When I send a Wake On Lan magic packet over the Internet with the Depicus toolam able to wake up my PC :-)
But this works only within a certain amount of time that my PC has been switched off :-( After a while it does NOT work anymore.
How is that and how can I fix it?
thanks for your support
