2011-08-15: This app has been accepted in Palm App Catalog so you should be able to install it from there .
2011-05-23: Source code for this app is now available on google code .
Wake-on-LAN (WoL) is an application for the Palm WebOS that sends a magic packet to remotely wake up computers and other devices. For more information about WoL please see the wikipedia page for it.
Below is a quick video demo of this application.
The interface is very simple. You add a target, and then click on the item in the list to send the magic packet.
If you have webOS 2.0 or newer then you can install it from the official Palm App Catalog. Search for “Wake on LAN Client.”
If you have a device that is on webOS versions older than 2.0 then you will have to use Preware. Because of the use of undocumented APIs, this application will not be available in the regular Palm App Catalog for pre-2.0 webOS. Instead you will have to install one of the homebrew installers like Preware that has the Preware repository as a source. The application is available in there as “Wake-on-LAN client.”
