If you want to restart a Windows PC on the network for which you have administrative rights, you can always do so from the command line (Start > Run > cmd).

shutdown -r -f -t 0 -m \\remote_computer

This will restart the system forcefully and will begin the process immediately (without waiting).

If you have admin rights on the other computer, you can do it this way

shutdown -i
After add the computer(s)
set the time and clic ok

If I am not wrong - You want to reboot the machine via remote.

You cane use - shutdown and shutdown -i as mentioned by Vobri and MaximR

You can also use PSSHUTDOWN - by Microsoft sisinternal - Powerfull tool with many advanced switches - Free :)

link to psshutdown - as part of PSTools
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649

similar command line to above:
psshutdown -r -f -t 0 \\remote_computer

-r is for Reboot
-f is for Force (closes applications without saving work) - a bit brutal, but sometimes you just gotta do it.
-t is Time before shutdown (default is 20 seconds, so the zero after this makes it take effect immediately.
and the remote_computer is either the name or IP of the PC in question.

... other switches are also available ...

!thanks for your quick replies.

This can be done only with the POE switches ? or it works as well for the normal swithces ?

Can i restart a domain pc from an external pc outside the office ?

Pstools should be installed on all the workstations which i need to restart  ?

1) Using the switches noted above after the noted shutdown commands is all you need for this to work.

2) Yes, if you're using a VPN connection that has your domain credentials to authenticate against the network.

3) PSTools only need be installed on the system you will issuing commands from.
