    You could use a remote control tool like vnc, iTalc, NetOp, ABTutor, etc to take control of the users session and log them out.

    Or if you know the terminal name, shut the terminal down remotely

    cmd> shutdown.exe /c\\

    If you prefer to use the GUI, right click your desktop and choose New > Shortcut. Enter the following path exactly:

    Code:
    c:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -i
    Name the shortcut whatever you like. Now double click the shortcut and the rest should be self explanatory

    You can use psshutdown to log off the console user (part of the sysinternals pstools package)

    Code:
    psshutdown -o \\computername
    although i've found that this won't work if they have locked the machine

    You can use LimitLogon for this too - if you have it installed.

    If you want to log someone off can you not use the logoff command?

    If you need to do it remotely use psexec or something to do that?

    Do you have the Windows Firewall enabled?

    We use Italc here to log off students and also monitor what they are doing.

    Great piece of open source software.
