I am having difficulties remotely shutting down laptop computers with CMD. My biggest problem is finding the laptops ipaddress. I have used the shutdown -I method for shutting down a laptop but it only works successfully when I try shutting down my own computer. Can someone help me please?

Title explains the question. How can you find another laptops ipaddress and name on CMD? I have tried net view but only my computer shows up. Help please.

Assuming you don't know anything about any of the computers on your network you would need to either write a batch file to ping an entire subnet or you can just use one of the many freely available ip or port scanners out there to get that information.

Here is one.

I thought that your two threads were sufficiently related to merge them.
