i have developed  a web-server application (ISAPI DLL) by using delphi..it is running fine
at my web server computer, i can type "kill inetinfo" in dos-prompt to kill my IIS service ..

however, is there anyway to do it in remote computer ?
in my another computer, i try to type

kill \\webserver\admin$\system32\inetsrv\inetinfo.exe


it doesn't work ...i just wonder where is actually the inetinfo.exe is located in web server ?
these 2 computer are located in the same LAN, i can access inetsrv folder by typing

\\webserver\admin$\system32\inetsrv\  in window explorer ....

thanks

Kill just doesn't support killing processes on a remote computer. Would be a nasty security problem if it could, anyways... Besides, killing processes this way will make your system a but unstable.

What you need is to write some program that you can connect to from the network. This program could then execute whatever command you like to execute.

You need rkill. You did not state which version of windows you were running. if 2000 then go to:

I believe the windows resource kit ships with tools for doing this.
search for PSLIST.exe and PSKILL.exe
The other option in the resource kit is the RemoteKill service, which unfortunately, requires a service to be installed on the remote computer.
Fortuantely, the resource kit also ships with 2 tools for installing services remotely :-D
I prefer PSList and PSKill myself. I even made a simple GUI for it once.

you pslist \\machine
and can see the process list,
then you pskill \\machine processid
you can make a simple "kill by name" encapsulation with an hour's work
