I’m looking for a way to remotely shutdown my File storage computer. I’ve thought that there is three ways to do this.
My host computer is running Windows Vista 32-bit. This is the computer that I use to control the remote computer. (computer name is Sian.)
My remote (storage) computer is running Windows XP Pro SP2. (computer name is Fileserver.)
A program. If anyone can suggest a free, easy to use program to do this I would be very happy.
Using the Windows Command Prompt. I’ve heard that this is possible, and I have tried it on my host computer by typing in: shutdown \Fileserver.
A Script. I’ve heard that you can run a script that will just shut the computer down. I was hoping that I could just bind this to one of the buttons on my media keyboard, because the storage computer does not have a screen.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
