Hi,
Great program!!

1- An option to reboot computer remotely without having to log in.
2- It would also be a great feature to receive a email alert when a computer "session" is down.

Thanks

Hi,
I'm not sure how I can implement these features, but if it's possible, I will. Just to be sure that I understand, what exactly do you mean if a computer is down, send a email, you want that Remote Desktop Manager monitor your computer ?

Thank you for your comments

Wow, it's true, you are quick to provide an answer smile

Here's what I meant about the email alert option:

Your software could do periodic Ping to check out which host is up and those who are down than, it could send an email regarding hosts that are down.

Sorry if my english is little hard to follow, it's not my primary language wink

Thanks
Best regards

Exactly what I was thinking, more monitoring options should appear in the version 6.0, but it's not the core business for Remote Desktop Manager. It's now added to my todo list.

Thank you

I'm planning to integrate more tools and I think that shutdown.exe could be one of them.

Thank you for the information.
