I've successfully connected to my Windows 7 desktop over wifi via Telnet from an XP Home netbook. To login, I use the following command:
telnet -l "win7desktop\win7user" win7desktop
win7user in this case is an Administrator on
win7desktop and is also a member of the Telnet Clients Group.
The problem I have is that when I attempt to shut down
win7desktop by issuing the following command:
...at the Telnet prompt, I get an Access Denied error:
Access is denied.(5)
Is it possible to shutdown a remote computer running Windows 7 via Telnet? If so, what do I need to do to get around the Access is denied error?
