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

Still no joy
