    i noticed that by using the shutdown.exe command (with the appropriate suffix) in the command prompt, one is able to shut down a computer which is on your network, right?
    if yes, then how do i go about doing this? i tried to shutdown remotely another computer i have and it gave me an "Access Denied" message. what do i need to activate in order to ble able to do it?

    thx,
    Apu

    You need administrative permissions for the computer that you want to shutdown. RPC needs to be accessable also, so dont block it with a firewall on the system.

    Try using the GUI version of this application.

    I shall PM you a link to download it.
