    Can my Android turn on my PC?

    Hey guys,

    Just downloaded Torrent-fu to control my torrents, and was wondering if there is an app available that could remotely turn on my PC?

    If there is, that would be awesome, in case I'm out and want to turn on my PC to start up a torrent.

    Thanks!

    Put computer behind a router that can run dd-wrt.
    Set up dynamic DNS to help you find your router from outside your network.
    Enable / configure wake-on-lan (WOL).
    Wake-on-lan using router's web interface or console into router w/ connectbot.

    Could also be done with a VPN, but consumer-grade routers sometimes struggle with that. If you go the VPN route you may be able to find a WOL app even.
