Configuring Machines' hardware for Wake-on-LAN

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that Wake-on-LAN features are by default disabled both in the Machine's BIOS and Operating System settings, so Remote Shutdown will not wake your Machines up until they are configured properly. This chapter is intended to help you with configuring the Machines' hardware to meet the requirements and prerequisites for performing Wake-on-LAN. We will guide you though the process of setting up the Machines' BIOS for Wake-on-LAN and configuring the network adapter in the Microsoft® Windows operating systems.

If the Machine already meets the requirements described below or has been reconfigured to meet them, it is ready to be turned on by Remote Shutdown.
