Send Message

Send Message

The Send Message action allows you to send a message to the selected remote Machines - the message sent will be displayed in a message dialog.

Tip

Wake On LAN needs to know the MAC address of the remote machine Ethernet adapter to succeed, so make sure that the Machines' data for Machines you are going to turn on by sending the WOL message had been successfully refreshed by Remote Shutdown. If you are not sure about it, please select these Machines and press Retrieve MAC Address button from the Network Ribbon group of the Remote Shutdown Ribbon page, wait for the task to complete and see the Application Log view to make sure the Machines' is successfully.
