Remotely Set BIOS password

Does anyone know of a windows application that can remotely set BIOS passwords???  We are wanting to change them on all our pc's and don't want to have to physically go to each machine!

Thanks!

I've seen no presently available tools to do that but it's certainly possible to implement something.  I'd be happy to quote a price for a custom development...

Two scenarios:

1) On insecure Windows (i.e. 95/98/ME) it would merely be a standard Windows application.  The BIOS password is stored in the CMOS RAM and this can be written from a Windows application.

2) On secure Windows (i.e. NT/2000/XP) it would require a DEVICE DRIVER, but only a relatively simple one.  The biggest issue here would be deployment of the driver on these systems.

Another complicating factor would be DIFFERENCES in the way the password is stored on different systems.  If you have a mix, there would definitely be some research involved in determining how each different system stores its password.

I think there is no posibility to set BIOS password remotely!

Most of our pc's are the same make and model.  All of them are 2000 or XP.

Not suitable for your needs, but an IP enabled KVM would do the job.
