reboot of draytek 2830 from the desktop

Hi all,

What is the simplest way to reboot a draytek 2820 router from a user desktop.

We are having 1 or 2 issues with a remote site which a quick reboot fixes. I would like the users to be able to do this themselves from a batch files or similar if possible.

Draytek 2820 with up to date firmware
all users have Win7

If you have command line access, you should be able to put together a batch file or script that logs in and issues a reboot command.  And then put a shortcut to that script on the user's desktop
Can you access the unit by telnet or SSH?
Gareth McKeeCEO/OwnerAuthor Commented:
yes, but I would like the user to have a 'button' on his desktop he can double click and it will reboot the router.

there by not calling me and then I have to log in to it and so on.
