WOL is broken in Windows 7
I use Wake on Lan to remote power up our pcs - using a VB app and also Depicus WOL applications. This has worked fine for years across our subnetted network.
Running the same apps on a Windows 7 machine doesn't work, running a monitor on remote machine shows that it doesn't receive the WOL packet. I've disabled the Windows 7 firewall yet it makes no difference.
I know the routing is OK as it works 100% when run from XP or Server 2003.
Is this just something else to add to the list of broken things in Vista, sorry I mean Windows 7! :mad:
