Wake on LAN works Wake on WAN Doesn't

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been trying to turn on my computer when I'm away from the house using both mobile data and another WiFi connection. When I'm on the same network the wake up command works but if I'm using mobile data I'll get the message "Wake up command failed" and when I'm on another network it says "wake up command sent" but nothing happens. I have the necessary port forwarded (UDP 9) and through the Pulseway android app port monitor I can see it works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

From what I recall, Wake on LAN from outside of the network only works as long as you have one device (that is connected to your pulseway account) is connected to the Internet/same network. Don't recall it ever working if all devices were shut off.

Hi @NadeCatcher,

At first please verify that the magic packets which are sent to wake your system is received by your local network. You may install Wireshark to determine this or if your router supports the option to do the network traffic capture, then you can do the same using this option. The WOL command is sent from your Phone if your Phone is connected to the local network. Also, if there are more than 1 system into the same network, then WOL command is sent from the system in that network.

However this functionality should work via the Mobile Data even if there are no other systems into the same network. The issue in this case might be that Magic packets are not received by your rooter or these packets are not properly forwarded on the router.

Hello, 

I know this is a long gone topic, but i do manage to work the wake on wan feature of the app thats why i love the app. However, a couple of weeks now, the feature suddenly stop working, not sure if the update cause this (both machine and the app) or just they stop the feature unless you are in premium. 

Please do enlighten us with this one.

      Hello,
      I would like to see the ability to run dual screens viewable at the same time on the remote control. That way customers who need to run dual screens and have to work from home arent stuck playing swap between screens. I think either opening a second connection to the computer with one of the separate screen would be fine, but maybe there is a better way like how Remote Desktop works or Google Chrome Remote Desktop works.

      Hi.
      If it is possible I would like to exclude full automation scripts from the diagnostics log "trace.log".
      In normal situations it is fine with just an indication of the execution with the script name.
      I guess you could add one more checkbox like "Include full Automation Scripts" in settings, and let it be disabled as default.

      Best Regards,
      Martin.

      Hello there, I just got Pulseway today as of 5/1/20 and am intending to use it to mainly be able to remote control access my PC from my phone when away from the house. I am installed all the appropriate applications needed and went through the Pulseway Remote Access application along with Pulseway Manager application and have enabled Remote Access. But for some reason I still can not access it from my phone. Perhaps I am missing a step? It would be amazing if someone would be able to help me troubleshoot this situation. Thank you for your time.

      I love the fact that we can now use the android app to remote into managed devices.  It works well when the user is already logged in...
      The problem I'm experiencing is when I remote control a Windows device and have to login.  I bring up the keyboard no problem and try typing the password to that computer.  What I am typing on my keyboard isn't typing in the password box on the PC.  In other words, it never seems to respond and type the password letters as I am typing, hence I cannot login (invalid password).  I suspect it has something to do with how Android on Samsung deals with autofill.  Ironically, I don't have this problem when using the Team Viewer app on the same phone.  That fact leads me to believe that it is a problem with the Pulseway Android App.
