Hello to everyone,
I am new to this community – I have just registered here. I have a question regarding the Wake-on-LAN feature in Infuse 6 Pro for iPhone.
The thing is that I have my home PC, which is on my local (home) Wi-Fi network, set up to be woken up by the Wake-on-LAN Magic Packet. So far, I have used one of the Wake-on-LAN apps available on the App Store for iPhone, which wakes up my completely shut down Wake-on-LAN-enabled PC. When it comes to this PC and Infuse 6 Pro on my iPhone XS Max, running on iOS 14.0.1, the PC is set up as a local share, using the SMB protocol.
Now, so far I have used Infuse with the PC already turned on to stream videos on my PC to Infuse. However, today I wanted to open Infuse with my PC shut down to simply stream some videos I had uploaded to my Apple iCloud Drive earlier. To my surprise, once I opened Infuse with the PC shut down, the PC booted up. Once that happened, I instantly realized there must be some connection between opening the Infuse app on the iPhone and the PC booting up. Looking around, I found out in this community thread Does Infuse support WOL feature for waking PCs up remotely? that just as once the Wake-on-LAN feature was available in Infuse, later it was not possible to implement it anymore due to some changes to iOS. However, as I can see the case being with Infuse 6 Pro now, Wake-on-LAN is available in it again. Now, just as it is available again, my problem with it is that I don’t want it. When I don’t use my PC, I want to able to stream videos from my Apple iCloud Drive or some other online drive only, without booting up my PC through Wake-on-LAN. I have tried to look for the Wake-on-LAN setting in the Infuse Settings, but to yet another surprise of mine, I cannot find any Wake-on-LAN setting, be it in whichever of the categories of settings under the Settings section in Infuse, or under the settings for the local share added to Infuse.
The situation being as is, my question is: Is there a way to turn the Wake-on-LAN feature in Infuse off, so that it does not boot up a shut down PC on a local network when I don’t want it to boot it up?
Thank you for your help in advance,
