    What is WAL? Basing an assumption on your thread title, do you mean WOL?

        Thanks, but I don't drink warm pommie beer. :0

        Just to make sure I understand correctly. You want to WOL a workstation when you remotely connect to it via SBS RWW?
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

          Nothing wrong with our beer - spent 12 months travelling Oz could have paid off the mortgage with the price of Ozzie beer! Cant beet barefoot radler though - lovely!!

          As for my question, obviously RWW connection to your desktop only works when the workstation is turned on. So someone has to be in the office to turn the box on. If a user can trigger a WOL event when they connect to the initial screen - where you get the emails,connect to desktop etc that would be blumin amazin

              Given the money your company will save on its power bills, a small one-off fee seems quite reasonable

                Went for the RemoteStartup 2008 in the end. Seems to work very well.
