(There's no video for Shutdown Remote yet. Please contribute to MR and add a video now!)
Shutdown Extension & Shutdown Remote were developed to restart or shutdown a Macintosh over a network. They were first intended to be used with ARA servers that activate with a phone call (such as those using Sophisticated Circuits PowerKey Remote), but will work on any networked Macintosh running System 7 Finder. Shutdown Remote, or rather Shutdown Extension, will not work on machines running AtEase. This has a lot to do with the built in security features of AtEase.
There are two components - Shutdown Extension and Shutdown Remote. Shutdown Extension loads at startup and waits in the background to receive a command from Shutdown Remote. Once Shutdown Extension receives a command, it will send its own commands to the Finder. The extension will also close any open documents and reply to the default of any dialog that may come up. Once this process has been activated, it will continue until the machine restarts or shuts down.
