Default How To Remotely Shut Down Windows XP Computers From A Linux Server

I followed this Howto step by step, and I am pretty sure I didn't miss anything. Unfortunately, when I issue the command from the linux box I get a message reading "Shutdown of remote machine succeeded" however nothing happens in the Windows box, not even the message is displayed.

Here are the specifications of the boxes:
  • Dell Optiplex 755, Windows XP SP3
  • Fedora 16 x86_64, samba 1:3.6.3-78.fc16

$ ping

$ net rpc SHUTDOWN -C "Being remotely shutdown" -f -I -U mcpc%

Shutdown of remote machine succeeded
Still no joy .
