computer won't wake on link after installing Fiddler Post a reply

First of all I'll say that I've investigated it deeply.

I used to have fiddler  4 , earlier versions and never updated.

When my computer turned to sleep , I was able to wake it by trying to rdp it.

The connection itself to rdp - woke the computer ( via network card) and the computer awoke ,and then I could connect to it.

this feature is called "wake on link".

After installing fiddler ( latest version) , suddenly my computer won't wake up from sleep when trying to connect to pc.

at first I didn't know what whet wrong and then I started uninstalling latest installed programs

When I uninstalled fiddler , it started waking  the computer

So I don't know what's you've done in the last version , but it f*s some other functionalities.

please fix it.

    That's really weird. Did you ever start the new version? Installer adds a firewall exception for Fiddler and that is about the only thing that can be somehow related to your problem I can think of.

    Sure I did start and installed the new version. I verified that it was fiddler after UNinstalling , the computer was back to woke up when trying to "ping" it. If you want - I can set a teamviewer that you can see for yourself. contact me privately at namir dot 78 at Gma_il

    I must say that in prev  versions of fiddler- it didn't happen. ( also  in the earlier 4 version).
