What’s New?

Distributed WOL

This enhancement to the Wake-On-LAN feature will help you achieve a higher success rate in waking up computers on different subnets. When a WOL is initiated the standard WOL magic packets are sent out but PDQ Inventory will also attempt to contact an online computer on the remote subnet and have that computer also send out a wake up. (Read an in-depth explanation of the Distributed WOL feature here.)

Distributed Wake-On-LAN is a Pro and Enterprise level feature. Compare Pro vs. Enterprise.
