Configuring Power Options¶
Once your PCoIP Remote Workstation Card and remote power cable is installed on the host PC motherboard, you can configure the power settings in the AWI. There are two selections for the Host Wake Option and only one for the Enable Wake-on-LAN (WoL) parameter. These parameters determine how the PCoIP Remote Workstation Card will behave when a remote power command issued. A prerequisite for using WoL is that the workstation's PCIe slot provides sufficient standby power to the host card.
Remote Power Button: If this option is selected and you have the Remote Workstation Card power button cable installed, you will be able to change the host PC power state by asserting the workstation's front panel power button.
PCIe Wake Input: If this option is selected, you will have the option to wake the host PC by asserting the PCIe WAKEB signal.
Enable Wake-on-LAN: This parameter must be selected to provide the host PC the option to being turned on (wakened) remotely. When the workstation is asleep or shut down, the host card operates in low-power mode in which all functions are disabled except WOL Magic Packet detection. In this mode, the host card monitors the network for a WOL Magic Packet that matches its MAC address. Once the host card receives the WOL Magic Packet, it powers on the workstation by either asserting the workstation's front panel power button or the PCIe WAKEB signal. A prerequisite for using either option is that the workstation's PCIe slot can provide sufficient standby power to the host card.
