As long as you know the MAC Address and WOL is enabled (it has to be enabled first in the BIOS).  The reason being, it could be security risk if your system functions as a server outside your DMZ.

Need More Insight Into What’s Killing Your Network

Flow data analysis from SolarWinds NetFlow Traffic Analyzer (NTA), along with Network Performance Monitor (NPM), can give you deeper visibility into your network’s traffic.

I downloded Utility but No success start my server Remote.I also opened ports on the router.where can be a Problem?
Did you forward the ports that you opened up?  The ports on the target machine need the port forwarding from the router.

Hi Callandor
I can start server local lan with utility but over internet not.Port is open(udp 5058).I think problem is router issiue.(Default router not forward Broadcast domain).any idea?
In the router port forwarding section, you have to add 5058 and send it to the internal address of your server (if you use DHCP, it will look like 192.168.0.x, or something similar).
Instead of messing with WOL, the T610 has the embedded iDRAC Express. Setup its IP on the network and hit it with your browser, here you and power cycle the server, on/off/reboot...etc
