Communicating with Windows XP on a Linux Network

By ·
Having a problem sending a remote command to an XP box for shutdown. Looking for guidance.

The particular setup for this requires that TCP/IP is not active at startup. Once up, I can turn it on and can telnet to the box but can't rhs, ssh, or rexec.

- I need to be able to delay the start of TCP/IP for $X minutes on an interface

- Send a remote command to the XP box via that interface

- lastly, send updates to the OS and applications of on the XP box via that interface.

Any thoughts our advice would be great

winders even offer the ability to not enable at boot hardware?


services listing.
( start run services.msc )

tc/ip from automatic to manual

then reboot the winders box, no network until you turn the interface on.
services tc/ip start

I suggest you give VNC a try to manage your Xp box from Linux

There is a setup in CMOS to shut it down or turn it on via signals in Newer Computers boxes
