A. If you are playing a multi-player game of Quake and are about to get killed for the sixth time just stop the opponents Quake process :-) (always works for me). To stop a remote process perform the following:
Note: The utilities discussed are part of the NT Resource Kit.
The target machine must have the RKILLSRV.EXE service running (either from the command line or installed as a service). To install as a service enter the command
C:\> instsrv rkillsrv c:\ntreskit\RKILLSRV.EXE
This will install the executable as a service and set its start-up to automatic so it will restart at every boot-up. After being installed the service will not be started and so if it is to be used before a reboot you should start via the services control panel applet or start from the command line using
C:\> net start rkillsrv
Once the service has been configured and started on the remote machine processes can be manipulated from client machines by users who have Administrative privileges via the command line RKILL.EXE and the GUI WRKILL.EXE utilities.
To view the running processes with the command line tool type
C:\> rkill /view \\<machine name>
e.g. rkill /view \\nt4pdc
Once you have identified the process to stop enter the command
C:\> rkill /kill \\<machine name> <process id>
e.g. rkill /kill \\nt4pdc 84
Using the GUI utility, WRKILL.EXE, the process is simpler and allows you to stop a process by selecting it and clicking "Kill Selected Process". Click Yes to the confirmation and then OK to the success dialog.
Bye, bye quake, 1-0 to me! :-)
