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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
