Lighten your smart phone with xCloud





As Steve Jobs takes us into an electronics rooted world filling with iMac, iPod, iPhone ect., we found our way of life has been changed a lot. He makes those high-end electronic products affordable for us common people. Therefore, we feel more and more depend on those electronics products, especially the smart phones. 
As we enjoy ourselves so much in the smart age; meanwhile, the overwhelmingly-coming apps and games make our smart phones so fat that we always have a feeling of needing. Its hard to amplify the size of our phone or give away some apps or games that we feel so necessary. 
However, xCloud will show you another alternative to lighten your smart phone in the following three ways.
However, xCloud will show you another alternative to lighten your smart phone in the following three ways.
Firstly, xCloud amplifies your storage of smart phone by connecting your phone to your personal computer. xCloud adopts P2P secure tunnel for data transferring. Instead of providing you any actual extra storage space, xCloud plays as a connection between your PC and phone, thus turning your PC into a personal cloud storage. In other words, xCloud amplifies your phone space to the hard disk of your PC.
Secondly, if you still doubt the capacility of your PC, xCloud even helps to provide even wider place by connecting Synology NAS devices. xCloud fully supports for Synolgy NAS devices since xCloud version 3.0.0. xCloud enables you to access your Synology  anytime and anywhere without professional settings. All you need is to login to xCloud on both mobile client and Synology client simultaneously and enjoy uploading or downloading photos, music, videos or other files at will. With powerful Synology, what more will you expect?


Finally, one xCloud equals several apps on your smart phone. According to the plan, the upcoming version, xCloud version 3.2.0 will be able to share files with micro blog (Sina weibo and Tencent weibo in China) and Twitter, Facebook etc.. Besides, another newly-added AP function is going to kicking your ass. With this function, your Synology or PC will be a router for your sake. In this way, you neednt install another sharing apps and more.

In sum, with xCloud, your smart phone is definitely going to lose weigh and get lighter and healthier.

How to Remote Wake over Internet with xCloud

Since xCloud 3.0 published, many users are attracted by the ass-kicking function of "Remote Wake over Internet" which means Power on/off PCs with xCloud remotely. But there are many users are confused about how to "Power" it exactly. In fact, to accomplish this operation, you need to have some settings.

a.Click “Manage Devices” in “Settings”;
 


b.The history of the PCs that you logged in with successfully will be displayed in “My Devices”. Switch “On/Off” to start up/shut down.
 

Setup PCs to accomplish remote powering on\off

In general, the mainboard is for waking PC in BIOS by default. If it didn’t work with xCloud, then you need to setup your BIOS. For different mainboards, settings are also different. Here we list the ways of settings of several mainboards.
I. Manufacturer: GIGABYTE
i. Press “DEL” to enter BIOS menu and select Power Management Setup;

 


ii. Set “PME Event Wake Up” to “Enabled”;
 

II. Manufacturer: ASUS
Press “DEL” to enter BIOS menu; then select “Power” and set “Power On By PCIE Device” to “Enabled”
 

III. Manufacturer: ASUS, GIGABYTE Press “DEL” to enter BIOS menu; then select “Senior” and set “PCIE device wake up” “On”.
 

IV. Manufacturer: Colorful mainboard CH61K    
 

V. Screenshots of some other manufacturers’BIOS settings:
 
  

Important:
Network Interface card must support for WOL standards. In order to check for that, with power supply and mainboard supported, you can shut up your PC first to check the indicator of cable status that connects Network Interface card and your device. If it lights, it means the Network Interface card supports for WOL (even though the function isn’t turned on in mainboard BIOS, the indicator still lights) . Otherwise, it doesn’t. If you still cannot remote wake your PC after all the settings, you need to check whether the“Allow the device to wake the computer”is checked in “Power management“of“Properties”.
To be specific: Right click computer, then tap on“Management”-“Device Manager”-“Network Adapters”. Then tap on Network Interface card and check “Allow the device to wake the computer” in “Power management“of“Properties”.
 

xCloud still cannot connect to PC?

Check your UPNP settings. Here are UPNP settings of several main routers.

 

 After all the settings above, you can enjoy yourself with xCloud  to power on/off your PC at will.
