I have a home network (two pc's), main one with Broadband access downstairs and 2nd one in kids bedroom. both running XP Pro, main one Office2000, 2nd one Easy Office. 2nd pc connects to the internet through the main pc.
I would like to be able to shutdown the Upstairs PC from the main pc, i have tried a shortcut to C:/Windows/System32/Shutdown but when i try to run it on the 2nd pc through the network, it shuts the main pc.
anyone know of a simple solution to this, if not i will just have to keep walking up them steps.
Try VNC from click here It's a free download, we are using this wheer I work and I'm trying to get my head round it at the moment but it looks like you can remotely control the second PC from your main one.
