Can I start and stop services to another machine via VB or VB.NET code?  I have seen some code that allows me to start and stop a service on the same machine.  I did not see any parameter for machine name. If possible any sample code would be appreciated...Thanks

It's actually pretty straight forward...

' add a reference to System.ServiceProcess.dll
Imports System.ServiceProcess

        Dim sc As ServiceController
        sc = New ServiceController("TermService", PC)
        sc.Start()
        sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Running)

and

        sc = New ServiceController("TermService", PC)
        sc.Stop()
        sc.WaitForStatus(ServiceControllerStatus.Stopped)
