Remote Shutdown App?

Discussion in 'Android Apps & Games' started by tsunamikitsune, May 29, 2010.

  1. I've been messing around with controlling my computer with my Droid remotely, using Wake On Lan to turn it on over the internet and Torrent-Fu/AndroidVNC to interact with it. The only thing I can't seem to figure out, however, is remote shutdown.

    Can anyone recommend me an app that will do this? I thought AndroidVNC would have a menu option for it or something, but no such luck.

  3. Looks good, but $10 is a little steep when I only really want it to shut down my computer remotely. Any free suggestions? I feel like this is something that should be a lot easier to find for free. D:

    find the beta of logmein

    Looks like the beta is closed, unless I'm supposed to find it elsewhere. Is a remote shutdown app really not available for free? I don't have much programming experience, but it seems like it would be simple enough to send a command over Wi-Fi/3G to my computer and tell it to shut down.

    Maybe I'll have to learn how to code for Android and make one myself. :p

    try looking further than the official site ;)
     
  7. Well, I found the LogMeIn Beta, but it's still not quite what I wanted. The VNC app I have does about the same thing, with no straightforward "Shut Down" command in the menus. I want something simple and quick to use, not a full remote desktop that I have to navigate.

    If you are controlling it with androidvnc, look at http://www.sysinternals.com and put a copy of psshutdown.exe on it. It will shutdown local or remote machines.

    You didn't say which O/S you are using.

    For GNU/Linux try Connectbot.
