why do you want to use command prompt? as computer management is the good option available.
just right click my computer go to manage- right click computer management (local) and connect to another computer

Is there something in particular you are trying to accomplish.  You may not be able to via command line, but certainly can by scripting using Win32_NTEventLogFile wmi class.

Otherwise check this perl tool from Microsoft (Eventquery.pl):

Thanks for the points; I hope I helped enough.  Out of curiosity, did you use the wmi scripting suggestion or the eventquery.pl perl tool?
