My bios has an option to "allow the system to power on when a magic packet is recieved by the ethernet controller". Does anyone know of such a thing?

Howdy:

It means, in layman's terms, that IF you are connected to a network, the server can send a packet (message) to your system and turn it on remotely..

Most people disable that option especially if they are on broadband..

On you on a server connected to a network and are the IT Admin??

Do you have a VPN setup??

Is PCAnywhere installed as a client on that system and then as host on another??

If it is none of the above, then you can't..
