Like it says - How can I reboot windows PC from a Linux terminal session?

-I have a site that has 1 public IP available, 3389 goes to the windows server, 22 goes to a CentOS 4.3 server (no X). There are several other XP workstations, but my port mappings are limited. Something locked me out of my windows server, is there a way I can reboot it over the LAN from my Linux server.

Please elaborate on any solutions, I am not a huge Linux guru, my experience is more in the beginner>intermediate range.

Thanks

configure key based authentication (passwordless) - if You need.
execute remote command with ssh (http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shutcut.php).

the simplest ways i can think about:
1. -- installating a tightvnc on the windows machine and then using a vnc client on the linux computer to login to the windows machine then reboot.

or

2. -- Install cygwin (http://cygwin.com/) on the windows computer enable ssh. so that you can "ssh windowsip" from the linux computer then type "shutdown -r"   to reboot windows.
