Thread: TeamViewer 10 / Failed To Wake Up Error

    Default TeamViewer 10 / Failed To Wake Up Error

    Hello,

    Recently, I have been trying to make a Database at home. And what I have tried is TeamViewer 10 (should be the latest version), and what I want to do, is to use Wake-On-Lan (WOL), though I am not having much success.
    My error that comes up is: failed to wake up [name of computer]
    I have configured only Teamviewers settings (so I did not go into the BIOS yet.).
    Why do I get this error, and how can I connect from Site A to Computer C (while Computer C is in another network and location).

    Cheers & Thanks,

    Then, why isn't this in the Tumbleweed forum?

    A program failing in Tumbleweed may very well have something to do with Tumbleweed. Or at least the version of the software stack on tumbleweed.

    I don't use Tumbleweed and thus can be of no help to someone that is. Whole different software stack. Why are you wasting my time????

    If you run Tumbleweed please post all question in the correct forum

    Default TeamViewer 10 / Failed To Wake Up Error Tumbl

    hcvv and gogalthorp,

    I am truly sorry for my mistake. But I would like to ask, wouldn`t TeamViewer run the same way on OpenSUSE 13.2, Tumbleweed, Windows, and Mac? I have a question about the system, it is not an OS problem I have. I have posted this here, since I have a question about the application itself (using the application, how to use the WOL [Wake-On-LAN]). The way I know, this program runs the exact same way (and works the same way) on all 4 OS mentioned above. So my reasoning to post it here, is to ask someone if they know how it works. So this post does not have much correlation to the OS, but it is here for assistance on using the program itself. I am having trouble using WOL to connect my 2 computers together. I have been using this program on Windows and OpenSUSE, they work the exact same way.

    Main Point: This post is for the program on how it works (I need help using it), I do understand your point that it should belong to the "Tumbleweed forum, but in this program, you need to configure the BIOS to allow WAL, and then download the program and using the program is where I have the problem.

    Then again, there might be a problem with the system (but I don`t really think so. Though I value your opinion more than mine, since you know a lot more about OpenSUSE than me). I can see your point that it should belong to the "Tumbleweed" forum. I posted it here, because I did not see much correlation to Tumbleweed (sounds stupid of me to do this, but if the program runs the same everywhere, I don`t see much reason of having it there).

    My apologies,
    -Arpadius98

    You must remind that you are asking a question. You have a problem and you did already look at it from all the sides YOU can imagine. Then you ask for help. One of the main reasons one asks for help, is because other people may look to your problem from a complete different starting point and thus see what you do not see. You did not see it, because when staring at your problem for so long, you are struck by some blindeness, making it impossible for you to see the other approach. That is human. We all suffer from it and thus are glad that we can call others for help.

    To let this process be successful, you should provide as much (background) information as possible to your potential helpers. Specially that information you think is irrelevant. Else your bias in looking at your problem will be forced on others.

    And you are here long enough to know that people like to know which software versions you use. Specially the operating system itself. And when you then (willfully or not) do not tell which version of openSUSE you use, you may be glad that people (again) take te trouble to ask it from you. Many people will simply think: Oh, it is him again, have to ask for the most basic info again, may take days, sun is shining, I go out for a walk.

    You also seem to ignore the fact that people will possibly try to re-create your problem in one of the systems they have. Many have several openSUSE versions running in e.g. Virtual boxes. How can they re-create in the correct version when you keep silent about it?

    And this is even more the case with Tumbleweed. Many people just run a stable openSUSE version as released and maintained. They are not interested in Tumbleweed, never used it, not really thought about using it ever and do not really know what the finer details about it are. They simply feel themselves not qualified to say anything useful about it. And as you have seen, good and valued members here are really frustrated when someone then asks them for help and does not say the problem is found using Tumbleweed. And there is one thing we not want, and that is that valued members stop helping people here because they are spoiling their time because people hide crucial information for them.

    We created the Tumbleweed forums for the Tumbleweed users. As a Tumbleweed user, please use it. And when you think that you need assistance from people using the standard distribution, then first re-create your problem with the standard distribution.

    And last but not least, you may find useful information here: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html

    And to give some most probably version independent advice about WOL:

    First try WOL outside any big application. Using wol, see
    Code:
    man wol
    And of course check if the system can be waked up and how
    Code:
    ethtool <device-name> | grep Wake
    (were <device-name> is eth0 or a new name like enp1s8)
