Are you a systems administrator of a small (medium-sized, large – underline the applying description) local area network? If yes, you certainly need this simple yet useful tool – EMCO Remote Shutdown.

EMCO Remote Shutdown is a networking tool that lets you shut down or reboot any or all PCs on your network. You only have to drag'n'drop machine names to the queue list to shut them down. Or, if you'd prefer the more sophisticated way of doing things, you could enter an IP range or add PCs by name. Once you decide on machines to be shut down, you can specify additional settings, such as whether to force all applications to close before shutting the system down, whether to send a warning message to the user, whether to reboot the machine and, of course, in how many seconds to perform the operation. The shutdown action can be aborted during the pause. The program can also be run in the command line mode – this makes it possible to include it to, say, a .BAT file you run at the end of a working day. Download this free tool today and shut down remote PCs easily.

 

Features:

Operations with Remote PCs:

  • Shutdown:

    Execute system shutdown of one or multiple PCs in the local network. Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side and force running application to close.

  • Wake-on-LAN:

    Wake up one or multiple PCs in the local network by sending them a magic packet. In order to wake up remote PCs should support Wake-on-LAN feature and have it enabled.

  • Reboot:

    Make a reboot on one or multiple PCs in the local network. Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side and force running application to close.

  • Log Off:

    Force log off of active users working on one or multiple PCs in the local network. Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side and force running application to close.

  • Hibernate:

    Run hibernation one or multiple PCs in the local network. Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side.

  • Sleep:

    Switch one or multiple PCs in the local network to a sleep mode.Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side.

  • Lock/Unlock Devices:

    Lock and unlock input devices (keyboard and mouse) on one or multiple PCs in the local network. Configurable options include: execution timeout, notification with a custom message, ability to cancel operation on the remote side.

  • Abort:

    Terminate execution of any launched remote operation on one or multiple PCs in the local network. Remote operations can be terminated during a timeout period when execution was started, but not finished yet.

 

Configuration and Execution of Remote Operations:

  • Simple Task Definitio:

    A new task should be created in order to configure operation with remote PCs. Task definition includes information about operation type, execution options, list of remote PCs where it should be executed and start configuration, including date, time and optional recurrence conditions. All these settings can be configured within few seconds using simple visual wizard.

  • Database Switching:

    All information about configured tasks and their execution results is stored in the database. Application allows creating multiple databases and easily switching between them to change an active configuration.

  • Automatic Tasks Execution:

    Application tracks all configured tasks and execute them automatically when their start conditions are satisfied. If at once start conditions of multiple tasks are satisfied, they will be launched in parallel.

  • Simultaneous Management of Multiple PCs:

    If task is configured to manage multiple PCs, remote operations on remote PCs will be executed in parallel when task will be started. It guarantees a lowest time, required to complete the operation.

  • Task Manager:

    Execution progress of running tasks can be tracked on a special Task Manager view. It provides an ability to see progress for every PC and cancel execution on a particular PC or all PCs at once.

  • Operating in System Tray:

    Application can be minimized into the System Tray to operate in background and run scheduled tasks. Adding it to Windows autostart settings allows running it automatically after the system restart.

 

Logging and Reporting:

  • Task Execution Results:

    Detailed execution report is available for every completed task. It includes execution date, time and status for every PC and detailed troubleshooting information in case of error.

  • Application Log:

    Information about all executed operation is available in the application log. For failed operations it provides troubleshooting information. To simplify navigation, messages in the log can be filtered depending on their types (error, warning and information) and appearance time. Also log can be automatically cleaned to remove old messages.


 

Tasks Scheduling :

  • Visual Scheduler:

    All tasks are tracked and managed using a simple visual interface, similar to MS Outlook calendar. It displays past and future tasks on the timeline. Timeline can be switched to different display modes, scrolled and zoomed to simplify navigation. Tasks can be easily managed directly on the timeline to change their start date/time and other settings.
  • Run Task on Date/Time:

    Tasks can be scheduled to run once on the specified date and time.

  • Run Task Daily:

    Tasks can be scheduled for recurrent run every day or on specified days. Options include execution time, recurrence range start and end conditions.

  • Run Task Weekly:

    Tasks can be scheduled for recurrent run every week or according with weekly conditions, on specified days of week. Options include execution time, recurrence range start and end conditions.

  • Run Task Monthly:

    Tasks can be scheduled for recurrent run every specified day of month. Options include execution time, recurrence range start and end conditions.

  • Run Task Yearly:

    Tasks can be scheduled for recurrent run every specified day of year. Options include execution time, recurrence range start and end conditions.

Network Environment:

 

  • Operating in Domain and Workgroup:

    Application can work in domain and workgroup network environment and is able to manage PCs located in domains and workgroups.

  • Integration with Active Directory:

    If target network is a domain-based, the application extracts information about network environment directly from the Active Directory. This information includes domains structure and hierarchy, so application displays network structure hierarchically, with organization units.

  • Custom Network Grouping:

    Alternative grouping of network PCs allows to create and manage own groups of computers. It simplifies configuration of remote tasks, because allows to create required groups once and then use them in tasks configuration to fill a list of target PCs.

  • Support of Complex Network Environments:

    To manage PCs remotely in a complex network environment application – should have an administrative access to remote PCs. Application allows to configure different credentials to access different domains, workgroups and PCs.
