How to shutdown your computer from a distance...

There's a small utility called "SHUTCMD.EXE" included in the Windows NT Resource Kit that you can use to shutdown or restart a local or remote computer.

For example, you can shutdown the local computer by running:


to shutdown a computer on your network ("SERVER1" being the name of the computer you want to shutdown):


to shutdown a remote computer connected to the Internet ("" being the IP address of the computer you want to shutdown):

    SHUTCMD \\ /Y
    NOTE: You must first logon to the computer that you're trying to reboot.
