Hallo!
We've got different VLANs and a LanSweeperServer from where we would like to perform WOL for the whole institution. Is there a possibility to wake up computers in different networks from one SERVERß

Wake on LAN uses IP broadcasts to send messages, by default these packets will not leave the subnet. To send the wake on LAN action to a different subnet you have 3 options:

  • Configure your routers to allow directed broadcasts
  • Install a separate scanning server on each subnet. (This requires a license that allows more than 1 scanning server)
  • Use VLANs to connect your scanning server part directly to each subnet.

The following links could also assist in configuring WOL further:
