    You're thinking turn it on and then specifically allow the magic packets through? Is that different to having it turned off?

    Everything is on the same VLAN and subnet.

    Just a much better idea having it on and besides there may be another firewall active, do you have AV on there, these often ome with firewalls that impose themselves on top of the Windows firewall that could quite easily be blocking it. I'd create a rule allowing that application as it produces a UDP packet on one of several ports and it can get tricky pinning down which way it is using without a packet sniffer. That kind of traffic may even be filtered if the firewall is off due to its nature (connectionless) hence the success in generating the packet but no idea of failure.

    Have you tried a different application like poweroff ?

    The server does (of course) have AV on it, however it is the same AV which is present on the client PC which I've just successfully used to execute the WOL command.

    Yes, I've tried 4 different WOL applications; the native one in Windows, mc-wol.exe, WOL2 (Wake On Lan Tool 2 .NET | Free System Administration software downloads at SourceForge.net) and SpecOps GPUpdate.
