Stop and Start App Pool in IIS7 with batch

I am trying to use:
%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd stop apppool /apppool.name: DSS

but get the error, The attribute "apppool.name" is not supported in the current command usage

Also I cannot stop the default web site with this:

%windir%\system32\inetsrv\appcmd stop "Default Web Site"
