I had a PC with Windows Server 2003 installed; it was used as file/movies server at home. I was able to wake it up from a different PC (running Windows 7) just by running Remote Desktop and connecting to the server.
When I upgraded the server to Windows 7 Ultimate, I lost the ability to wake it up with Remote Desktop on the client end. The hardware and BIOS settings are exactly the same.
These were/are my settings:
- NIC setup to wakeup the PC
- Disabled "Allow ONLY Magic Packet"
- Accept Magic Packets + Patterns (or something similar)
- Shutdown/Restart - Enabled
- ACPI 2.0 - enabled
- APIC Support - Enabled
How can I restore the previous behavior? I really want to be able to wake the server up using Remote Desktop.
