Can I connect when a computer is asleep, or powered off?


If you are sure the remote computer is connected to the Internet but you see:

VNC Server is not currently listening for Cloud connections

...when attempting to connect, then it may be that the remote computer is asleep. Note that Wake-on-LAN (WOL) is not currently supported under any platform.

  • It has been almost two years since Lucy's question was asked. What progress has been made to allow RealVNC to work with Wake-on-Lan (WOL)?
