Did you try using IP address instead of hostname?

Have you tried using powershell to conduct the task? Powershell has much better network APIs for management of remote PCs when compared to standard command shell.

Powershell is located in Start>Accessories>Windows Powershell

The syntax can be seen below. Replace the credential part with the machine name and then the username. Also change the IP address to the IP address of the machine you wish to shutdown. After execution you will be prompted for a password for that account. Make sure any related firewalls are turned off for this or add an exception in Windows Firewall to allow WMI (Windows Management Interface).

Should be okay When specifying the credentials use the local machines credentials. For example, if I wanted to shutdown a machine called JOSH-PC then I would use the credentials JOSH-PC\Administrator. Or another administrator user account to authenticate.

Hope This Helps,
