    Re: Remote shutdown

    might be bit of a long shot, but if they are SP2 have you got the firewall turned off on the machines. That might be stopping it

    I use a simple vb script to shutdown my network, and I've not had a problem.

    How are you doing it?

    Re: Remote shutdown

    Anyone got any ideas why the rest work and 2 give a access denied?, i know people say permissions but they should all be the same as the all have the same group policy.

    Re: Remote shutdown

    Heard of telnet? i have seen it in action as the techy in our school shutdown every computer in school (over 200) due to a scheldued power cut. Google it. He used the telnet command and shutdown to every computer IP in a notepad file and ran it as a batch file.

    Telnet is a protocol; not a program. It alone cannot shutdown a batch of computers.
