How To Use WOL

Wake-On-LAN (WOL) is a standard that allows your PC/Smartphone to turn on a computer via your local network or Internet.
Edge is different with VIM1 as it supports the WOL function.

Firstly, You have to connect Edge with your LAN and get its Ethernet MAC address.

Get Ethernet MAC Address

MAC Address Sticker can be found on the board’s backside:

If your sticker has peeled off, you can use the following steps to retrieve it:
1) Using Ubuntu, you can type ifconfig on terminal

$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 98:aa:fc:60:46:de
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
inet6 addr: fe80::9aaa:fcff:fe60:46de/64 Scope: Link

The HWaddr 98:aa:fc:60:46:de corresponds to your Edge’s Ethernet MAC Address.

2) Using Android, you can get it from Settings->More Settings->About->Status menu.


Enable WOL

By default WOL is disabled. You’ll need to use the KBI (Khadas Bootloader Instructions) to enable it.

kvim2# kbi trigger wol w 1
set_wol: 1

To check the WOL Status, you can run:

kvim2# kbi trigger wol r
get_wol: 1

You also can enable WOL in the Setting->More Settings->WOL menu on Android.


Test WOL

Now We can start to test WOL function.

1) Connect Edge with your LAN network

2) Power-OFF Edge

3) Attempt to wake up your Edge with different Devices and OSes.

<1> Using a Ubuntu Host, you’ll need to install the wakeonlan tool

$ sudo apt-get install wakeonlan

Now you can wake up your Edge with a MAC Address:

$ wakeonlan 98:aa:fc:60:46:de

<2> Using a Windows Host, you can download the Wake-On-LAN Sender tool

Add Remote Computer:
