      hi,
      try the shutdown utility from the nt4 resource kit.
      parameters are: shutdown \\Computername /R(Reboot)
      or shutdown /L(lokal) /R

      It’s been a while, but I believe the “shutdown.exe” program from the NT4 ResKit will work. But you need a couple of other switches. Best command is:

      shutdown /l /r /y /c

      This gives local execute, reboot, “yes” to all close requests, and “forces” all programs/processes/services to “close” – preventing hangs. Note that some programs ( PCAnywhere Host is one ), may cause the server to go to shutdown but fail to reboot – leaving it with the “safe to turn off” window.

      You might want to check some of the older small, free shutdown shareware/freeware utiities as an alternative. “KillWin” was one I used a while back that worked well. Should be available on some of the shareware sites like WinFiles or 2Cows.

      try setting up VNC viewer on it and then you can logoff,restart or shutdown, just like you are standing in front of the server. You can find info on this athttp://www.uk.research.att.com/vnc/
