  • John,

    If your Server is asleep, then you will need to be able to send a 'WOL 'magic packet' from your location to the IP address of your server behind your router.

    This site and this site, both have reasonably good walkthroughs. If you then have any further problems, post back with the specifics for help.

  • I have tested a new device that allows to switch on «Wakeup» a PC via Internet WAN always, easy and surely. Read here:
