Cant manage services on remote computers

Hi,
we have 50 computers connected by VPN to server. There is no domain.
I need to check on those computers (Windows 2003, XP SP3) the status of one service, and if it is stopped, start it.
I am trying
>sc \\192.168.1.5 start myService obj= "administrator" password= "pwd"
it always returns "Access denied"
>net use \\192.168.1.102 112233 /user:administrator
System error 1326 has occurred.

Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password.


What I am doing wrong ?

on the line where you specifi net use you may need to specify the source for the administrator login - assuming the login credentials for the administrator on your machine and the remote machines are hopefully different. In your case since there is no domain context the targetmachinename will be substituted for the domain since you are trying to log on as the adminiistrator of that machine.
net use \\192.168.1.102 112233   /user: targetmachinename\administrator

TargetMachiineName does not help.

C:\Users\ADO>net use \\192.168.200.102 112233 /user:XP\administrator
