  • shutdown command has an option to specify the remote computer.

    Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e] [/f]
        [/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c "comment"]]

        No args    Display help. This is the same as typing /?.
        /?         Display help. This is the same as not typing any options.
        /i         Display the graphical user interface (GUI).
                   This must be the first option.
        /l         Log off. This cannot be used with /m or /d options.
        /s         Shutdown the computer.
        /r         Shutdown and restart the computer.
        /g         Shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is
                   rebooted, restart any registered applications.
        /a         Abort a system shutdown.
                   This can only be used during the time-out period.
        /p         Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
                   Can be used with /d and /f options.
        /h         Hibernate the local computer.
                   Can be used with the /f option.
        /e         Document the reason for an unexpected shutdown of a computer.
        /m \\computer Specify the target computer.
        /t xxx     Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
                   The valid range is 0-315360000 (10 years), with a default of 30.
                   If the timeout period is greater than 0, the /f parameter is
                   implied.
        /c "comment" Comment on the reason for the restart or shutdown.
                   Maximum of 512 characters allowed.
        /f         Force running applications to close without forewarning users.
                   The /f parameter is implied when a value greater than 0 is
                   specified for the /t parameter.
        /d [p|u:]xx:yy  Provide the reason for the restart or shutdown.
                   p indicates that the restart or shutdown is planned.
                   u indicates that the reason is user defined.
                   If neither p nor u is specified the restart or shutdown is
                   unplanned.
                   xx is the major reason number (positive integer less than 256).
                   yy is the minor reason number (positive integer less than 65536).

    Other options are described over

    Hi A.m.a.L,

    Can the computer name section also include an I.P. address or can this only work within a LAN?
