1. install and configure rshsvr.exe  on NT server (don't forget \winnt\sytem32\drivers\etc\.rhosts)
2. write your script on NT server
3. call it from anywhere (where rsh is available)

Alternatively use the Web Administration extension to IIS that comes with the resource kit.
Or a telnet daemon.

Alternatively, use the scheduler service on the remote machine to run the batch job local to the services to be shutdown.

Alternatively use the SC utility from the RK, to remotely start/stop services.

Note that you need a remote administration tool to stop / start the scheduler service remotely anyway.
Alternatively, erm...
Is this the point when someone who hasn't even entered a comment yet comes along and asks tspoon96 for an update ?
I suppose it is.

create a batch file running the following command:
net stop <service name>

and schedule it on the remote server with the AT command.
(the script should be located at the remote server)
