The Wake-on-LAN feature is now also available on iOS! You are welcome to download the new ISL Light iOS 2.2.2 and connect to your remote computer from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch even if it is powered off, in hibernation (Windows) or sleep (Mac) mode.
Download ISL Light iOS with the WOL feature for iPad or iPhone
How do you access a remote computer that is shut down from your iPad or iPhone?
Since the Wake-on-LAN (or WOL) function requires a few tweaks made beforehand on the computer you want to access remotely, let’s recapture first what steps to take to enable Wake-on-LAN.
That done, take your iOS mobile device, open the ISL Light app, log in and find the remote computer listed under My computers. If the computer is switched off or otherwise unavailable, its status will display ‘Offline’ and the green button ‘Send WOL’. Tap ‘Send WOL’ to wake the computer up. When it wakes up, its status will change into ‘Online’ and the green button below into ‘Connect’. Finally, tap ‘Connect’ to access it. That’s it!
Offer remote support with a mobile app
At the end, I’d like to remind you that each ISL Online license includes mobile apps, available for iOS, Android and Windows 10 Mobile. These apps allow you to access and control any remote computer from your mobile device or offer mobile device support to your clients.
Here’s a quick recap of remote desktop mobile apps features. You can:
- Access remote computers, phones or tablets via WiFi/3G/LTE
- Remotely control computers, Samsung phones and tablets and Windows 10 Mobile devices
- Troubleshoot and resolve issues on any Android or iOS device through screen sharing
- Record sessions and play them back with ISL Player
- Install or remove apps
- Manage running processes
- Text-chat with a remote user
Enjoy in total mobility that ISL Light iOS brings and don’t forget to share the news about Wake-on-LAN on iOS with your co-workers!
