System-wide shutdowns

Shut down network computers in one fell swoop with this simple tool.

RemShutdown provides system administrators or other authorized users with a way to shut down all or select computers on a network. It's easy to operate, but system experience is a must.

This program has a very simple interface with quick buttons to add or delete computers from the list. All that's required to set up a computer is its IP address. This screen also lets you enter a delay time before computers shut down, but it's only in seconds, and we would have liked the ability to delay in increments of hours or days. A small field lets you enter a short message that will be displayed on affected computers before shutdown. Users might lose work if they miss the message, though, as you can set the program to force a shutdown on remote computers. A final option lets you initiate a restart instead of a full shutdown. Shutdowns can be aborted if accidentally initiated.

RemShutdown is a simple program that performs a complicated task. With a user-friendly interface and intuitive design, knowledgeable users will find this to be a handy tool to effectively shut down multiple computers on the fly.
