Wake up PC with Magic Packet

WakeOnLanTool wakes up PCs on the network by sending the Magic Packet. The Mac address of the computer to be woken up is required. If you want to wake up a PC that is located in another IP subnet, you also need the broadcast address. Read also the following article to make your computers and your network ready for Wake On Lan: Wake On Lan Windows 10.


When WakeOnLanTool.exe is started, the user can select his/her own PC from a list and then wake it up. WakeOnLanTool remembers the last woken PC, so that it is already preset when it is started again.

Data source

The computers.txt file serves as the data source. The position of this file can be set in the WakeOnLanTool.ini file. The computers that are to appear in the selection list (ComboBox) must be listed here in the following syntax:

Computername <Tab> Mac address


PC1024    000b973320ed
PC1025    000a9733214f

Wake-up across subnet boundaries

Most routers are not configured by default to allow wake-on-lan packets to pass. Read here how to solve this problem: Wake-On-Lan to other subnet.

System requirements

WakeOnLanTool runs on Windows 7/8/10/11 and Server 2012/2016/2019/2022 (32 or 64 bit). It requires at least .NET Framework 4.
