graysun Posted May 15, 2011 Share Posted May 15, 2011 First off I'd like to say this is my first post but I've been watching hak5 for a couple months though. I apologize if this is a re-post some how but I did search the forums before posting this. I've been researching this for a while but I dont think I have the smarts to figure it out. I was wondering if there is a possible to wake a computer up from a completely turned off state via text message from my cellphone. I don't have a smart phone where I can just download an app. How would I go about doing this if it is possible? I understand the computer will need to be Ethernet wired and I'll need to send a wake up call via WAN or something to this degree. The thing that I am having trouble it allowing the network to receive the message from the cellphone text message that would lead to the packet being sent to wake up the computer. Is this even possible? This is something I came up with while joking with a few friends and was wondering if it was possible but I dont think it is. If anyone has any ideas at to how to do this was be wonderful. Any other alternative methods would be cool to know also. Thanks in advance for any information given.
