Great application, intuitive interface. Widgets and SSH commands are very handy.

Superb and simple to use app that does its job. I use it to bring my Synology NAS out of hibernation. WolOn achieves this when Synology's own app does not, so I'm very grateful.

Wake on LAN or WOL is an Ethernet protocol that allows a device to be turned on or awaken by broadcasting a ”magic packet” in the network.

Media Access Control address, or MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to a network adapter. It’s usually displayed as six pairs of hexadecimal values separated by colons or hyphens (e.g. FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF).
On any OS you can find it in the networks adapter’s settings, or you can use the command line:

  • Windows – Win+R and type cmd. In the Command prompt window type ipconfig /all and press Enter

  • Linux/Mac – Open terminal and type ifconfig -a

Yes, WolOn works over the internet. You will need a special configuration for your router to accomplish this though. You can find more information in the WolOn’s Help section or in this set-up guide

In most of the cases Wake on LAN works well over cable connections, nevertheless there are wireless network adapters that that support Wake on Wireless LAN (WoWLAN). So, if your wireless network adapter supports it, then it should work.

Yes, just check the VPN Accessible checkbox for your device and WolOn will send the magic packets for that device through your phone’s active VPN connection. It depends a lot on your VPN connection. It should not filter out broadcast messages.

WolOn – Wake on LAN app pings your devices to get their current statuses. Devices that are on will have a green dot in the WolOn Widget or a green sun displayed in the app. Device statuses are checked when you open the app or drag down the devices list. In WolOn Pro version this check can be done at specific time intervals that you chose.
To make the check more reliable you should assign a static IP to your device and fill in that IP in the Status Check IP field in your WolOn device configuration.

SSH stands for Secure Shell. It’s more common on Linux and Mac but can also be used on some Windows versions. SSH is typically used to log into a remote machine and execute commands. For example you can run a shutdown command, execute a backup script, start a server, etc. In WolOn Pro version you have the option to set-up a SSH command and WolOn will run it whenever you tap the command in the app or the command widget.
Your SSH credentials are encrypted and stored only on your phone.

Just follow the instructions in the app, it’s easier than said. Upgrade to WolOn Pro version requires a one time in-app purchase.

Yes, your data is safely stored only on your device. You are the only one that can access it.

Unfortunately sometimes Google Play gets out of sync and even if you made the purchase, Google’s in-app purchases library doesn’t publish this event in the app. This situation is out of developer’s control, but there are a few tweaks that you can try to speed-up Google Play’s sync:

  1. Clear the cache of the Google Play app
  2. In Android Settings find the Accounts section. From there select the google account used to make the purchase and force sync. Usually you can force a sync by tapping on the 3 dots menu from the toolbar
  3. Restart your phone!!!
  4. Open google play app and make sure you see the purchase in the Google Play app – Top left menu -> Account -> Purchase history
  5. If you see the purchase in the list, then open WolOn – Wake on LAN app and check the Pro purchase screen. If you see a screen with a “Thank you” message then it’s all set and you should get access to the WolOn Pro version

If this didn’t work you can ask for a refund from Google Play and make the purchase again. Usually this also works. If you still have issues enabling WolOn Pro version then please drop me a line at purchase@wolon.app.
