wmic /node:"Computer Name (FQDN)" RDTOGGLE WHERE ServerName="Computer Name" CALL SetAllowTSConnections 1

This was added in W2k3 SP1 and works against XP machines but has to be run from a W2k3 SP1 machine. I have not figured out how to add this ability to my XP workstation.

    For WMIC calls from Windows XP you need the /locale: switch. Windows 2003 defaults /locale to whatever you have installed with (default ms_409).

    I haven't tried toggling this from Windows XP though, and I know there are some commands that will not work from a Windows XP machine, though these have so far been due to restrictions of login details. Using /user: and /password: does not necessarily grant enough permission to shutdown a machine while logged on with low privelages.
