Is it possible to either reboot or turn-off the My Book World Edition WITHOUT being physically present?
I think it responds to "reboot" command issued over SSH.
Yes, it responds to "reboot" command, but apparently not to "shutdown". Does anyone know how it shutdowns when you press the front button 4 seconds? Where is the command?
if either of those commands dont work, which sometimes they dont, just use the -f (force) option in the command line, like reboot -f.
Shutdown is called halt in Linux. The halt command is called 'halt' ;-)
Well I use the normal shutdown command that every Unix or Unix-like has. :)
To halt: shutdown -hy now or shutdown -hy 0
To reboot: shutdown -ry now or shutdown -ry 0
It worked for me.
I will make another one of my php scripts for you if you'd like, so that you can shut it down over simple http. Obviously you'd want to hide the file inside a secure folder.
It should be available here in the next few hours if i've got the time:
There are others available there at the moment which you may also find useful.
