Re: Remote shutdown ... of Win95
Why not set up an some sort of unix -like
environment on your win box and remotely
run a shutdown?
Cygwin does run under 9x.
The Cygwin FAQ is at:
Cygwin is GPL'd.
Theres a port of sshd based on cygwin.
Not sure if it runs under 9x:
You might also try AT&T Unix for Windows
which comes with telnet and rsh daemons
(and much more) as well as the shutdown
There's a contributed port of sshd to
u/win available, too.
