Power-on script for Dell DRAC 4

I need a script that can remotely power-on a Dell PowerEdge 2850 through the DRAC.  I can log onto the web interface and power it on, but I'm looking for a simple "click this" script that will do it so I don't have to open, connect, power-on, close.

Any ideas?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The other option is to use the Wake-On-LAN magic packet.

try auto shutdown manager at http://itpowersaving.com 

they have this in their freeware version.

They also have a wake on wan /wake on lan over internet client that you can use to wake an office pc through VPN from home.

Thank you both, but in the end, I was looking for something simpler than Linux or VPN.  The following can be saved as a .bat file and run remotely with DRAC Tools.

racadm -r 192.168.1.110 -u root -p calvin serveraction powerup

Of course, root/calvin are the default creds for the DRAC, and powerup can be replaced with a variety of commands, including powerdown, hardreset, and graceshutdown.
