Trace route determines the path to a destination (if not prohibited by firewalls). Is is being implemented for very fast path determination.

(WoL) Wake-on-LAN allows you to wake up a device via your network, the internet or VPN by sending a magic packet to wake it up. Please note that the remote device must be configured to listen to those kind of packets for being able to be woken up.

For WoL to work you need to configure the LAN Broadcast IP address. It is the address being used and it prevents problems arp caches being timeouted and thus impossible packet delivery within the target network. (e.g. Host IP mask use as WoL broadcast IP)

The Wake on LAN feature has been successfully tested with Airport Express, Airport Extreme, TimeCapsule and quite some other vendor's devices such as Cisco, Draytek, AVM routers. In bridged, routed LANs as well as over the Internet through IPSEC VPN connections.

If you have any feature requests, wishes, bug reports or whatever use the email option in the info section.

Actually works, doesn't treat me like a child, not spamware

The Apple App Store is 80% garbage. When I download an app that says "This app does Thing X!" I fully expect it to not do thing X, or Thing X is promised and not delivered with a paid subscription.

This app is not a big deal. And that's a big deal. It does what it says it does, and doesn't do a bunch of useless things.

I have an adblocker VPN so I don't even see the ads in the free version, but I'm going to buy the full version just to support apps doing what they say they'll do.

The only thing I'd suggest is that the developer update the app to disclose what types of data it is exfiltrating from my phone. Right now the "privacy nutrition label" (I think that's what it's called) says that the developer has not disclosed what data it is exfiltrating.

Also the background in dark mode is the same color as the text on some pages, i.e. the text is not visible, e.g. on the Settings page.


Advertising still appears after paying for ad - free version

I just installed the app and purchased the ad - free version for $1.99. Received a notification that the app is now ad free. A few clicks later in the app advertising started appearing again. If I could add a screen shot for proof of evidence I would. So in case a screenshot is needed - I have the evidence. If the developer contacts me in a timely manner and has a ad-free solution available I am willing to rate the app with more stars.
