Remote Shutdown Daemon and Client
(version 1.0) provide a method of remotely shutting down a computer
either on a LAN or over the internet. There are two executable
files, the daemon and the client.
How to use the Remote Shutdown Daemon
1. First download the zip file and unzip the
msi file into a directory of your choice. Run the msi file and you
will be presented with 3 options.
The "Remote Shutdown Client" is for
the machine you want to use to send the shutdown message from.
The "Remote Shutdown Daemon" is for
The "Remote Shutdown Daemon Service"
is for NT/2000/XP/.NET
2. Run the executable
"RemoteShutdownDaemon.exe" and you should see an icon appear in the
system tray (see below).
3. Note that the first time you run
"RemoteShutdownDaemon.exe" your icon will show a "0" in the tray as
you currently shouldn't have any connected users.
4. Next double click on the icon to bring
up the main screen (see below). Check the details are correct but
note that at this time you should not have had any connections.
5. Select "File" > "Options"
from the menu bar to show the configuration area (see below).
6. Remote Shutdown Daemon uses port 81 by
default. You can "Stop Listening" and then change the port
number if required to any valid port number (1 to 65535). Just
remember you will need to know the port number you assigned for the
client. The "Max Clients" allows you to restrict the number
of uses that can connect.
If you have a mystery connection you can
attempt to send a message to all connections by typing your message
into the "Data" edit box and pressing "Send To All"
- You must change the "Secret Code" as the default setting of
"Change Me Now!!!" will not allow the daemon to shut down the
computer from the client until this has been changed.
Set "Auto Run on Start-Up" to have the
daemon run when Windows starts. Please note you must be logged in
for the program to run.
Set "Verbose Logging" to log all actions
and connections made to the daemon. This is handy if you want to
check for connections while you were not at the computer especially
port scanners and the like.
The Client has two steps.
1. Fill in the host name of the remote
computer that is running the Remote Shutdown Daemon and the port
number if you have changed it from port 81. Then open the
2. Fill in the "Secret Code" from the
Remote Shutdown Daemon and press "Send Data" ... then the
Remote Shutdown Daemon will shutdown your remote computer.
Price - Remote Shutdown Daemon is now free.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code.
