Hi Zaka,

What you propose to do is every system administrator's dream!! You will be the next Gates :)

Anyway jokes aside, I'm not much of a programmer myself. But I believe "service detection" can be done by SNMP polling. Similarly so can remote machine shutdown. I believe Microsoft have already released tools in their Windows 2000 CD [A folder named tools or utils].

Nevertheless, has a section on networking where details about SNMP programming using Visual C++ are present. Take a look and tell me.


PS: Now do I get a cut out of your billions, Mr. Gates??


Thanks so much for your comments and the encouragement navinquadros.Well the link you gave is good anway but the solution that i found there is on c++ as you said but iam not all that too good on c++.  I think you really deserve Grade(B). thank once again.
