    Hi,

    Just bought a new MacBook Pro (mid 2010). Also an iMac 2010. I would like to be able to wake these up over the internet to remote control them.

    For both I have a host name (dyndns) which allows me to bypass the changing IP I get from my ISP. Both also have a static private IP (10.0.0.x) and I know their Airport MAC addresses. Finally they have in System Profiler the "wake on wireless supported option).

    So it seems I have all the conditions needed as said in an APple Support doc related to "wake on wireless".

    However I can't seem to be able to do it: tried websites, apps (wakeup, wake550, wol).
    Has anyone ever succeeded in doing so?

    If needed I have a permanent access to a little Mini Server at home. I could for example connect to that one to be able to wake the MBP also at home, on same WiFi network.

    Thanks!

    DO I need to forward port 7 or 9 in my router to the iMac or MBP or can I use any other port that is already forwarded (SSH etc)?
