Add remote "Wake On Lan/Wan" functionality

Currently, Emby can wake up a computer that is in sleep mode through the "Walk on Lan" feature, but only through the local network.  This doesn't help of course if I'm out of town and want Emby to wake up my computer, or a friend or family shares me Emby account and they need to wake up my computer.  Adding this remote Wake On Lan/Wan functionality would be very beneficial, and cost saving; as users can still allow their computer to go to sleep (thus saving power), but wake it up from wherever they are.

My memory is a little fuzzy on this but I think it will require special router configuration.

You are right, it has to be done by proxy either through the router or another device on the internal net.

 

This is not something emby should be concerned with.

 

The OP needs to research remote wake on lan using google. There are solutions available.

After posting my question here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/80007-windows-10-sleep-mode/ it was suggested that I put in a feature request here. 

 

I do know that I have my router setup correctly, as I'm able to use a basic "wake on LAN" app from my phone (while disconnected from wifi) to ping my external IP address, and it wakes up my PC.

Is the wake on WAN functionality still not something that emby has built in?

Build yourself a NAS or buy one! I have a OMV NAS that's been running for 4 years now running Emby (in a docker) that never goes to sleep and has been rock solid.

Edit: My NAS is in my garage which can get upto 38c in summer, just make sure you get HDD drives that are built for running 24/7.

Hi, Emby does support wake on lan inside the local network.
