    Hi,

    I have a little issue with the WOL function. I have two network adapters in my Server (10Gbit and 1Gbit). Only the 1Gbit supports WOL (it's onboard).



    When I set e.g. the video folders on the client side within MediaPortal Configuration, I can click "Learn MAC address now", but unfortunately the client then chooses the 10Gbit interface MAC address on the server, which does not support WOL packets.

    Is there a way to manually edit the remote WOL MAC address somehow?

    Thanks

    Turn off Mediaportal, Look in Mediaportal.xml for macAddress ... find 10Gbit interface MAC address and change to 1Gbit interface MAC address, start and check ...
