VNC® Viewer Plus 1.1 User Guide
This is not the most recent version. Read the latest documentation.
You can use VNC Viewer Plus to power the host computer on, power it off, and power it off and then on again (that is, power cycle it).
Note: For power on and power cycle, you can choose to boot to BIOS configuration, to an operating system, or to a remotely-mounted image. For more information on the last of these, see Remotely mounting an image on the host computer.
To perform these operations:
1. Click the Power toolbar button. The Power dialog opens:
— Power the host computer on, click Power On. Note this also wakes the host computer from hibernate, but not sleep, mode.
— Power the host computer off, click Power Off. Note that data may be lost if it has not been saved. You are disconnected, but are immediately prompted to reconnect without having to authenticate (actually establishing the connection, however, may take several moments).
— Power cycle the host computer, click Reset. Note that data may be lost if it has not been saved. You should remain connected. If not, configure VNC Viewer Plus for Wi-Fi and then reconnect; see Restarting a Wi-Fi-enabled host computer for more information.
Note: Power cycling is not the same as restarting an operating system. An operating system may subsequently complain that it was not shut down properly when the host computer powers back on.
3. For Power On or Reset, choose a boot option:
(This dialog is specific to the Power On command.)
Click the Power On button to perform this operation. Click the Cancel button to return to the Power dialog.
