Hei guys
I'm trying to remore shutdown a windows xp computer
When using the remote shutdown command via the command prompt  i enter the command shutdown -s -m \\computername and   i get an error message "Access Is Denied."  i used the ps tools also with no joy...

I am running XP Pro SP1. & the computer I wish to restart have an XP pro SP-1 also they are connected through a 8 port switch hub
i can see the other computer on the net & i have a shered resource on it (folder)
i dont have any permissions on the computer they both log in  with 1 user name that as an administrator rights

note:i'v started all the services on the remote conmputer (rpc,telephoney...) & ping command works just fine

Apparenty your account does not have privleges to do this. Is your account part of the admistrator group.
