shutdown remote pc on LAN
Greetings everyone, it's me again - this time with the second half of the Wake on LAN thread.
I want to powerdown a remote PC simply by double clicking a desktop shortcut on my local machine, and it should be possible using the shutdown command.
I have tried creating a new shortcut with "shutdown /s /m \\[computer name]" with both the name of the computer and the IP address, but neither works. As a check I tried shutdown /i for the GUI and it returns an "access is denied.(5)" error. I've even done this in an open as administrator command prompt, but doesn't work. What's confusing is both accounts local & remote are admin accounts so I shouldn't have any access problems.
As it is, I can shutdown remotely, but I have to 1st initiate a remote desktop connection, wait 20 seconds for it to connect then doubleclick a shutdown pc link on the remote's desktop. This has a 30second delay for me to close the remote dektop connection.
Anybody, little help please?

Solved: shutdown remote pc on LAN
Thanks kegobeer, though I spent half an hour playing with my Comodo firewall as per your link, I think the answer was:
I remoted in and did the following at the computer: Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy> Local Policies > User Rights Assignment. Double click “Shut Down the System” and click Add User or Group. Type “Everyone” without quotes click OK. The same procedure must be done in “Force Shutdown from a Remote System”. Reboot.
Sweet - now works a treat. I can abandon the batch file I had half written!
Thanks all (and kegobeer +1)
