File/folder sharing needs to be enabled on the XP Machine

Comment by LrdShaper 252 weeks and 3 days ago

worked awesome for me (Mac OS X 10.6.3)

... also if you aren't sure what the IP address is you can try the hostname (using -S)

per the help:

Valid targets: choose one (none defaults to localhost)

-S or --server= server name

-I or --ipaddress= address of target server

-w or --workgroup= target workgroup or domain

I've been using:

net rpc shutdown -r -f -C "shutting down" -S hostname -U admin%adminpass

and it works well for me :)
