Command line switches for remote shutdown

Command line switches for remote shutdown   11 October 2019, 22:53

I am wondering whether there are more command line switches for netscan.exe. For example, the manual lists /wolfile:filename.txt, which allows to specify MAC addresses to wake-up... But is there something like /shut:filename.txt or /help ?
Thanks in advance.

No, there aren't any switches for remote shutdown. It would be more flexible to use the built-in shutdown command, for example with a BAT file. Something like this:
for /f %%s in (list.txt) do shutdown -m \\%%s -s -f -t 0
Type shutdown /? in a command prompt for the complete list of parameters.

This works great!

(use %s for use in CMD)
