Power off router remotely

Dear Friends,

I was wondering if there is any way/command to power off cisco routers/ switches remotely. Thanks!

Manoj,

AFAIK the Cisco routers/switches do not support any command to power off remotely. However, you can use a third party UPS with an integrated terminal server to power off/on CPE remotely. Some high end switches may support the option of powering off the modules in a switch.

Hi,

Only command to power cycle them.

way and command has many meanings. There is another way which is to command someone in the remote site to power/switch off the router/switch. A little joke there :)

For this u need to insall smart Ip based Kvm switch at remote end.

so by accessing the powered KVM through ip , you can shout down the devices at remote end.
