Using Wake On LAN to remotely wake up my Windows 8 server

What I did:

  • Under Network Properties, Power Management, check “Allow this device to wake the computer” and “Only allow a magic packet to wake the computer”.
  • Under Advanced tab, make sure “Wake on Magic Packet” and “Wake on pattern match” are enabled.
  • On the Internet router, forward port 9 to the server.
  • Use “Wol Wake on Lan” Android app to wake up server.
