While it is possible, you are going to have to provide more details as to why you want to do this. It's quite possible this will fall under the umbrella of "hacking" and it's generally not something we encourage or support on this forum.

Simple, with a suitable server/service running on the desired machine - log in via ssh/rdp/telnet/rsync and authenticate properly, then issue the appropriate shutdown command for the target operating system.

Any method which doesn't require authentication (assuming it is a machine which you don't own) would be a denial of service and therefore illegal in most countries.

I thought it would be of use for others to know that this is theoretically possible to do from an iPhone, provided you have an app which can do remote logins - but I don't own one so I'm not sure whether they can do this out-of-the-box.

I have yet to see justification for this line of inquiry which will lead me to believe you wish to use this for legitimate purposes. As such I will not provide any further technical details.

I agree (and assume you mean non-legitimate).

No I did mean legitimate, as in everything so far seems to indicate non-legitimate use - and therefore I have yet to see anything that would convince me it is intended to be used legitimately. Semantics anyhow, we agree.

Usage: shutdown [/i | /l | /s | /r | /g | /a | /p | /h | /e] [/f]
    [/m \\computer][/t xxx][/d [p|u:]xx:yy [/c "comment"]]

    No args    Display help. This is the same as typing /?.
    /?         Display help. This is the same as not typing any options.
    /i         Display the graphical user interface (GUI).
               This must be the first option.
    /l         Log off. This cannot be used with /m or /d options.
    /s         Shutdown the computer.
    /r         Shutdown and restart the computer.
    /g         Shutdown and restart the computer. After the system is
               rebooted, restart any registered applications.
    /a         Abort a system shutdown.
               This can only be used during the time-out period.
    /p         Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning.
               Can be used with /d and /f options.
    /h         Hibernate the local computer.
               Can be used with the /f option.
    /e         Document the reason for an unexpected shutdown of a computer.
    /m \\computer Specify the target computer.
    /t xxx     Set the time-out period before shutdown to xxx seconds.
               The valid range is 0-315360000 (10 years), with a default of 30.
               If the timeout period is greater than 0, the /f parameter is

    /f         Force running applications to close without forewarning users.
               The /f parameter is implied when a value greater than 0 is
               specified for the /t parameter.
    /d [p|u:]xx:yy  Provide the reason for the restart or shutdown.
               p indicates that the restart or shutdown is planned.
               u indicates that the reason is user defined.
               If neither p nor u is specified the restart or shutdown is
               unplanned.
               xx is the major reason number (positive integer less than 256).

that should work, assuming that you have the relevant permissions on the machine to instigate such a task

Or using rdp you can log in using your credentials for the remote machine and initiate a shutdown using the start menu. The remote machine has to have rdp turned on and you have to have a user account you can access.

If you are trying to get an unwanted guest off of your network you can just change the password to the network or block the MAC address.

I use teamviewer on my server and in the case that I do shut it down, it shuts down through that.

umm actually this can not fall under the hacking category, because he is not violating any rules not trying to gain any information that could possibly be used against the victim .

No but I think you're forgetting, that the 'victim' can still be hurt if his computer is turned off without his knowledge or consent. If he were uploading something for his job or compiling code, turning off his computer would be harmful. Even without data theft, gaining access without consent sounds like its hacking to me, unless somehow you know for sure that he owns the remote computer.

Clearly you dnt watch the video.. ( sad face). You type netstat into cmd and look at whos connected to your net.. Then type shutdown -i to pull up the gui and type the name or ip of the computer on your net

Oh my god. Guys in this case google is your best friend

clearly I watched it more closely than you did.

the guy types net view, (not netstat) which should give him a list of all the names of the computers, except there is either only 1 computer in the workgroup that he's on, or given that the network discovery isn't working.
(a good example of this is that I'm currently in the office with about 10 people using machines, when I type net view I only discover 4 (myself and three others).
-i.e this is an unreliable way to find machine names. -and besides which surely you should know the name of the machine you;re trying to shutdown...

the next thing is he says how to shut down the machine, he points to his IP address and says, this might be an IP address, or it might be, "i forget what you call this"... it's an IP address IPV6.

but why enter the IP address at all? DNS resollution is clearly working, - that's how he got the IP address! why not just type the machine name...

comment "you've been hacked!" where was the hacking?? this is pretty basic stuff, and you can't send remote shutdown commands unless you have permissions to actually do that, -hardly hacking?

Then, if you can't run CMD, just make a batch file to run it...??





The not too subtly hidden subtext of what I'm saying here, is...
the most useful thing he did was show that you could use the shutdown command, and it had a graphical interface.

he spent the other 4:20 seconds spewing uninformed tripe about how you needed to run the command prompt, how you could try and circumvent restrictions and what funny and ill informed messages you could write in the shut down reason box... google could have been this guys friend too...
