Magic Wake on LAN Updated to Version 1.1.714.2

Magic Wake On LAN, an add-in that adds wake on lan capabilities to your home server and network, was updated to version 1.1.714.2.  Read on for details!

Back in December, Andrew told us about the initial release of this add-in.  Here is what Andrew told us about the add-in back then:

Magic WOL is a clientless WOL solution for WHS V1. Utilizing the latest AJAX technology for seamless website interaction, Magic WOL is the easiest solution for waking up computers for RDP. Not only is it accessible from the WHS console and the remote website, but it easily allows you to manage devices in your network that are not connected to WHS.

Features:
*Clientless integration, only need server installation.
*IP Helpers and ARP finders that keep your PCs info accurate when WHS doesn’t.
*Edit, Delete, and Add new computers to the add-in.
*Automatic Updates for all future releases.

Today, I woke up to find that the automatic upgrade function had downloaded a new update and it was ready to install, so of course I updated the application.  The latest version fixes bugs.

Here is the full changelog:

Upcoming Features:
*WakeUp Timers
*Add Computers from console
*Network Mapping

This add-in costs $7 and comes with a 30 day trial for evaluation purposes.  I use this add-in frequently to wake my home desktop from the office and the road, and if you are looking for a WOL solution, I can recommend it from personal experience.  I use it from my Android phone and my work computer and since it deploys a website for sending the magic packet, it can be used by a multitude of devices.

FULL DISCLOSURE: Since I beta tested the application over at MediaSmartServer.Net, Christian Johnson, the developer, provided a free license to me.  Even if I’d paid for it, I’d recommend it, but thought that you should know about the freebie.

What are you waiting for?  If you haven’t tried this yet for your v1 box, give it a whirl!
