    wake on lan?

    is there a c6 or .net function for the network cards wake-on lan capabilities?
    multiple computers running a data entry program written by our company and when the programs or program that is being updated has been changed, i would like to wake and check version info on computers that have the program. i think that makes sense lol.

    What system are you using (Windows XP, ...)?

    I think this should be in the Network board.

    Isn't this something you enable in the BIOS, or perhaps by right-clicking on the network device and choosing "wake up on lan" ?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
