The remote control pop-up window
When clicking on 'Remote control' you'll get a pop-up window asking for some details.
|Name||The device you are remote controlling.|
|Package||Select a remote control package from the list.|
|Address||Choose between FQDN or IP address.|
When you click on 'Confirm' the following actions will take place:
- The remote control package will be installed on your machine if an install action is present for this package and it's not already installed.
- The launch action of the remote control package will be executed and the 'address' you selected will be added as a parameter.
Wake on LAN (WOL)
The 'Wake' option allows you to wake up a device.
Liquit sends a WOL packet to the device from the Liquit server. You have to make sure your infrastructure is setup correctly to support this functionality
The WOL confirmation dialog
When you click on 'Confirm' the packet will be sent.
There will be no feedback if the action succeeded. Liquit currently does NOT verify if the remote device was successfully woken
