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.

Did you forward the ports that you opened up?  The ports on the target machine need the port forwarding from the router.

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
