AMD Link Wake On Lan

Hello AMD Community,

I recently decided to go ahead and purchase an AMD Ryzen 7 5000 series laptop to go along with my Ryzen 5 3600 / Radeon 5700XT desktop. I want to be able to connect to my desktop from my laptop while it's sleeping with AMD Link. I enabled Wake On Lan in my bios hoping that this feature would be baked into AMD Link but sadly it's not working. It does however work with Steam Link.

I'm hoping to see this feature added in the future. For now, I've settled with a Wake On Lan app on my laptop that wakes the computer up so i can connect to it with AMD Link.

I made Wake on WAN, so that I can remote start my PC and Parsec / game stream from it over the net while travelling. 
My cheap and dirty solution was to use an old Android phone as a wake server that i can remote login to, and send the magic packet from there...

I have also found out that AMD link does not work over the Internet if you do not have a public IP from your ISP.
