No, PSShutdown will work for Windows computers only. You will have to telnet or ssh into the Unix box to initiate the shutdown. A simple way to shu tdown the Unix computer is through Putty. Putty is a desktop client that allows you to connect to Unix servers through various protocols.

Download Putty using the following URL:

I didn't ask my questions properly..

I need to automatically shutdown 3 computers in a situation of a power outage. I have 2 windows computers and one UNIX computer. Is there a way to do the in a cost efficient way? I will be implementing this onto many units.
