The command prompt I have been trying to use is as follows:
shutdown -s -f -m \\Dell4300 -t 30
Accourding to what I've learned, this should do a forced shutdown on the Dell4300 in 30 seconds. I try this from my Inspiron 8200, and I am sure that I have the computer name for the desktop right. But every time I make the attempt, it tells me the network path was not found.
I use Windows XP home edition. Is something wrong with the command? Do I not have my network set up properly to do a remote shutdown? I would greatly appreciate anyone who can help.
