Version 1.1 (August 22, 2011)

MAC address retrieving from DHCP

The Professional edition of the application includes an additional option to retrieve MAC addresses from Microsoft DHCP servers. MAC retrieving from DHCP has a significant advantage over other MAC detection mechanism, because it allows to get MAC addresses for all network PCs even if they are turned off. Depending on network connection settings DHCP servers used to retrieve MAC addresses can be detected automatically by the application or can be specified manually through the Preferences dialog.

Active Directory queries

Now the Professional edition of the application offers a flexible configuration of WOL operation targets using so-called Machine Queries. If you run the application in a domain environment you can specify WOL targets using Active Directory queries instead of define a fixed list of PCs. For example, you can run WOL for all PCs in a particular Organization Unit in AD. You can use visual editor to build required AD query and run it to ensure that it returns required PCs. Machine Queries allow retrieving always up-to-date set of PCs from AD. If you specify query in the Machine Queue of a scheduled task, you don't need to update it manually, because the actual list of PCs is extracted from the AD every time when WOL is executed.
