Depicus wake on lan batch file question

#1 Post by Haris1977 » 05 May 2020 14:11

Greetings

I ve downloaded depicus wake on lan file (https://www.depicus.com/wake-on-lan/wake-on-lan-cmd) and i ve created a bat file to wake on my server.

my bat file is this

echo on
WolCmd.exe [MAC ADR] [IP] 255.255.255.0 7
pause

When i double click it i get a window that says "press any key to continue". I do not want this message to appear (i want the window to disappear after 2-3 seconds). How could i do that?

For older versions of windows that do not have timeout as a command, but do have a tcp/ip stack installed, I use the following for a timer:

Code: Select all

ping -n SECONDS 127.0.0.1 > NUL
where SECONDS is the number of seconds you want to pause.
