Can someone please tell me what the syntax to restart a client computer on the network is?

for example I use  " shutdown -r" to reboot the server when I'm in a remote session, but if I wanted to reboot or shutdown a client workstation what would be the syntax that I would input on the run line?

Thanks all

1) open the command prompt. This may be done by clicking on the "Start" button, and selecting "Run".
2) type in CMD
3)Type in shutdown -m \\computername, replacing "computername" with the name of the computer you wish to shutdown or the computer's IP address.
4)shutdown command's switches.
-r will force a restart, disabling any services or user interaction from interrupting it.
-c "comment" will force a comment to appear on the system being shutdown.
-t xx will force a timeout for "xx" seconds. For example, -t 60 would perform a shutdown after a 60-second timeout.
-a will abort the shutdown.
A full command example: shutdown -m \\myserver -r -c "This system will shutdown in 60 seconds" -t 60
