Thank you!

Thank you for testing it. Biggrin It seems not that many people have taken an interest in it. I will try and keep it updated but there hasn't been a new version of this app since late 2007

Tests

As far as it working, I haven't had any problems. I can't speak for the PAF compatibility. I use this program at work, so it's really nice having a portable version of it.

Thanks!

All you have to do is this.

All you have to do is this. On the computer in question goto start->run->type cmd->type ipconfig /all. Find the adapter conntected to the internet (you may only have one) and it'll tell you your mac address. This is assuming you are running windows xp. For vista do the same except search for cmd in your search box in the start menu.

here we go... :)
    In the App dir

  • rename IH Wake On LAN to ihwakeonlan
  • In the App\AppInfo dir
    • You have a readme there i dont think you need it
    • Also your icon meets the requirements for the 256 colors but now you also need the xp colors(so ur half way there!!!)
    • In the appinfo.ini
      • Description=(Description)

        actually add a description

      • Category=

        add a catogory as well

      • DisplayVersion=0.031

        Make this a little more user friendly(that is why we have it)

      • You appinfo.ini version should be 0.9.8 not 0.9.9
    In the Other dir

  • In your Other\source dir
    • You have a file called ReadMeNow which needs to be deleted
    • Your entire ReadMe is about Sumtra PDF.(take a look at any release to get the proper design for the readme)
    • In the readme make the this line
      Copyright 2004-2007 John T. Haller

      into this:

      Copyright 2004-2008 John T. Haller
      Copyright 2008 Ben Kaufman
      
    • You are missing an appsource.txt look at any release to see what it contains
    • Your code looks great, just remember to add the change in the $EXESTRING because u changed the app path
    • You also have a splash fade of '10' after the 1000 on line 165 that you can change to 0.
    In the main dir

  • Your help.html needs a little more info, add a link to the (original)site and an faq or forum that they may or may not have. Also change the link for IH Wake On LANPortable Thread. to the actual thread that you are using for the project

That is all I could find, when you release again i will check again

Please search before posting. ~Thanks

Aww.....

I thought I got all the readme's (I originally used digitxp's template). Guess not. I will fix all that stuff as soon as I can. I will probably need some help with the icons though (neorame will you help me?). And also I will eventually need to get the high res icon for the splash screen (neorame again? Biggrin ). I might have a little trouble getting it out though. I have a term paper to do and regular homework also Cry
Thanks for the tips,
Bensawsome

For future reference...

To prevent the name of the app your using as a base for your new app appear in files, use one of the two "Cloning Cleanup" tips here:

this is cool

All right! not the best implementation of WoL on the web, but it works for small-scale stuff. So far, running no problems, haven't checked if any files left behind yet though

Well, It's called "Wake On

Well, It's called "Wake On LAN" for a reason, not "Sleep On LAN". WOL uses a "magic packet" to start a machine via it's network card. I don't think there's such a thing a "SOL" (except the ".... outta luck" saying Wink ).

There are other Windows tools out there to remotely turn off computers on a LAN, namely the Computer Manager (not portable though, but is installed on all Windows machines usually)

Start --> Run --> compmgmt.msc --> {Enter}

You could also look into using SNMP to turn computers off.

good app

I have been using this lately at work
it is great
it has troubles sometimes with ip addresses and computer name.. but mac address works great.

I would definitely use this very frequently

Later,

WIll have to try

Thanks! I've been looking for a program similar to this, and a portable version would be excellent.

It will be a while before I can actually set up and test this, but I just wanted you to know that I'm interested in it. Smile

I just had to register and say thanks for this. I'll save a lot of energy not to leave my home computer on but still have access to it.

Thanks!

Could be useful, but I'm lucky enough to own a WRT54GL with the Tomato firmware Biggrin

Bug Report

Searched for my computer.
Hostname 113.220.205.155 D8-D3-65-11-13-04

Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : 78-E7-D1-82-0B-44
Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::e588:5ee4:4969:f26b%11(Preferred)
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 155.205.220.113(Preferred)

OS: Windows 7 64bit

Maybe this application doesnt work with windows 64bit. but as you can see it has returned my IP address backwards. and hasnt got the correct MAC address. so the program will not be able to send the magic WOL packet
