Hi,

 

I have used mc-wol to remotely wake up pc's on my network for a long time. It's not working since I upgraded to win 10. I cannot send the signal from a win 10 computer. It worked fine from win 8.1 and 7.

 

I gave admin &  everyone rights to the program itself, tried compatibility mode for lower windows versions, & allowed the program through the win firewall. Never had to do anything special before.

 

Again, it's not the computers being woken up that have the problem. It's the sending of the signal from win 10 which is being blocked.

 

Update: I turned the win 10 firewall completely off, and it still did not work.

I figured out a workaround.

MC-WOL isn't working from win10 for unknown reasons, but depicus wake on lan does, so I'm good.
