alright, here's a problem with this. I don't think "allow remote connections" is turned on... (It is a winXP machine) because rdesktop times out.

Here's what I have:
- admin password
- local LAN access from a linux box
- ability to mount c:\ as cifs share

i tried running that shutdown from wine but that doesn't work either.

Basically, I've a windows box that I need to reboot from work because there's an app there that's consuming too much bandwidth. But I only allow inbound ssh to the linux box, not to the windows machine.

Go to www.radmin.com and use that application, or you can get it from download.com. You can choose to pay for it, or not, either way it never runs out. You install it on the windows box and then start a server and leave it running in the system tray (you will have a password set by this time, or you can use the nt user permissions security) and you can run the viewer in your linux box using wine. I know this won't help you now but it might help you later. You can even completely take over the computer using Radmin. All you have to do is make sure that port 4899 I believe is open on your firewall(s). This is what I use to quickly and easily transfer files, shared or not, between my linux laptop which is in my room and my windows box which is in my girlfriend's room upstairs.
