Whenever I try to remotely shutdown another computer on my network that is running Windows XP Pro, it says that "The network path was not found."

And when I try to shutdown another computer on my network that is running Windows 2000 Pro, it just says "Access is denied."

Does anyone know why this is?  Here's the command line I'm using to shut the computers down:

shutdown -s -m \\192.168.0.3
