I am trying to get a Windows 2008 R2 server to Wake On Lan (WOL), but I am failing. Before you ask the usual questions:
- 1: YES - the hardware supports it (Dell Precision T3400)
- 2: YES - the BIOS is set to allow it
- 3: YES - it works with Windows 7
- 4: YES - Control Panel settings are reviewed and look OK
The servers goes to sleep, and I cannot wake it up by sending network packets to it. When on Windows 7, this does not occur.
If Windows 2008 R2 does not support this, how can it be made to, ie: what can we use from Windows 7 to try to provide this support to Windows 2008 R2?
