Need to reboot/restart IIS remotely

Is there a way to do this through firewalls?

I tried to install the Terminal Services on my remotes machine, but with the firewalls in the way it didn't work.

I haven't researched being able to reboot the server remotely, but I heard that it was possible.

With my server in one place and my office in another, I need a way to restart when IIS takes a break.

Thanks.

It can be done, but I don't know enough about Terminal Services to know if it will via that program. I have PC Anywere installed on my host and Laptop and I'm able to restart my host via laptop when I travel. There are some tricky configuration to get it to work, but it will work. The most important step is to make sure your remote access program is in your start up group, or after you restart, you won't be able to access again because the remote program didn't load with the re-boot.

good point - thanks. I'll get a copy of PC Anywhere.

I also found a product from Sunbelt Software called Sunbelt Remote Administrator - has anyone come across this?

You should be able to restart the server through terminal services with no problem - we've also used Timbuktu aswell which may be worth a look (can't remember the URL though, sorry)

I installed the Sunbelt product and it works very well. Good security, only $35.00 for a license.
