Wake-on-LAN (WoL) is an Ethernet or Token Ring computer networking standard that allows a computer to be turned on or awakened by a network message. The message is usually sent to the target computer by a program executed on a device connected to the same local area network.You can turn on or wake up a NI PXIe system remotely over Ethernet. WoL is supported on Windows PXI Express (PXIe) systems. It is not supported for Real-Time Pharlap ETS but supported in NI Linux RT. It also requires that the target has an Ethernet card that uses a 5 Volt standby rail in order to monitor network traffic while the PXIe system is shut down. Typically, only the first ethernet port on a NI PXIe controller supports WoL. Please refer to the PXI Controller Manual of the respective model for more information.It is important to note that if there is a power outage, the chassis must be rebooted to return power to the Ethernet port. Most PXIe controllers have a BIOS feature called Restore After Power Loss. When set to Turn On, the controller will automatically power on when AC power is restored.To configure Wake-on-LAN in Windows 7, 8, or 10:
