Communicating with Windows XP on a Linux Network

By peterson.de ·
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

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
