From a command prompt:
shutdown /r /f /m \\machinename /t xx

where \\machinename is the netbios name of your remote computer (\\computer1, for example) and xx is the amount of seconds you want to delay the reboot.

/r = reboot
/f = force
/m = remote machine name
/t = time delay in seconds

You will need administrative access to the remote computer to do this.

You can remote reboot a machine in many ways but you first need to be connected to it... Are you already connected to it?
If the answer is yes then all you would need to type from the command prompt or from the start-run:
shutdown  /r

If you have domain and you are administrator, I prefer "shutdown -i" command - it gives me graphical interface as I don't have to remember whole command syntax.

I for example like to remote connect to my customer's computers using Logmein Free....
www.logmein.com 
This service alows me to restart, shutdown, provide any maintenance to the computers at will and remotely.
