miniWOL v1.2 available!

miniWOL v1.2 available!

Previous miniWOL versions proved that just reading the specifications of Wake on LAN and testing with your own equipment is not going to result in a 100% perfect application, as it seems that certain machines prefer to see a broadcast over the network instead of a specific IP address.

In this new version, you can still retrieve the Mac Address based on IP address, and use a broadcast mask ( is the default). This should help with certain setups like Synology devices.

This update applies to Windows and MacOS versions of miniWOL.

Note: I have just uploaded a revised v1.2 (Friday Dec. 9 2016) which fixes sending a WOL when miniWOL starts for those servers that have been tagged as such.

Read the original MiniWOL article. Comments, bugs, question etc, can be posted there as well.
You can also download it from our Downloads page.
