    The WOL (Wake-On-LAN) is an Ethernet standard which aims to send a special network packet to power on systems on the network. WOL works at the lower layer of network stack while DASH WakeUp is an application. WOL is either broadcast or multicast message, but DASH WakeUp is an authenticated message directed at a specific DASH system. DASH WakeUp is guaranteed to power on the remote system.

     

    In AMPS 4.2, DASH WakeUp can be enabled in DASH Configuration window. 'DASH Configuration' can be opened by navigating to 'Administration\Overview\DASH Management\DASH Configuration’ and clicking on 'Properties'. Ensure 'DASH Wakeup' option is checked.
