    Default Shutdown Usage

    Ok I understand that there is a usage for shutdown. When I type shutdown i get the command and the usage. I follow it and it works for the machine i'm on. Is there a way to use the "shutdown" command for my other computer's ip address to remotly shut it down? i have to have shutdown -k (don't really shutdown, only warn) -t secs 10 hey you then i'll get a message that says i'm going to shut down in 10 minutes. i understand that part. where would i put a known ip address in there if i could?

    I don't think so. You can ssh into the machine and do a shutdown -h though.

    This is a cool script to run in a Mac OSX lab. This is all one line by the way. Also run as root or sudo.
    Code:
    osascript -e "set Volume 100"; say -v "Boing" now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the lord my
     drive to keep, and if I die before I boot, I pray the lord the tapes did make; shutdown -h now
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    If it's a winders box you want to shut down remotely, you can do that with the PSTools package.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Ya it's just a dell with xp. now you've got me curious because if i can shut down a computer remotely then there are other things i could do. such as transfer files back and forth like a wireless hyperlink. (made one the other day with 3 wires- pretty cool) this could be dangerous if put online i suppose.

    And what exactly is this "wireless hyperlink?"

    i meant that i made a hyperlink in school, which was a direct connection straight to another computer with 3 wires. i thought that maybe a ssh would be like a direct connection to another computer via wireless cards. so it would be kind of like a "wireless hyperlink". i guess i wasn't very specific, but it wouldn't be a direct connection because i would have to go through the router first.

    You mean you made a serial link connection, I cannot think of any other communication method that would work with three wires. All you'd need for Serial would be Transmit, Receive and Ground. This is by no means a 'hyperlink', and is one of the oldest methods of computer communication.

    Exactly why I asked the question. How would that be dangerous by any means if put on the "inturboxtubez"?

    It isn't dangerous, anyone should be able to make a serial link, it isn't rocket surgery. I just made some custom serial cables at work the other day.
