Adding Machines Manually

Remote Shutdown provides you with an option of adding Machines to the Network Browser manually by using the Add Manually command or choosing the appropriate enumeration type in the Enumeration Wizard. This shortcut action can be found in the Network Ribbon group or the Network Browser pane pop-up menu.

Pic 1. Specifying the criteria of adding Machine(s)

The first thing to specify is the name of the group where the new Machine(s) will be added to. You can specify it manually or click ▼ and select one from those available in the network.

Single Computer

This option should be used to add a single computer manually. To add it, you should enter its host name or IP. The Machine will be added to the specified Group.

Single Computer

IP Range

Use this option to add multiple computers by specifying the range of IP addresses. To add Machines via an IP range, you should enter the start and end values. The application will perform the reverse name resolution and add the Machines with the provided addresses.

IP Range

Group of Computers

This option should be used if you want to add a group of computers with regular names (e.g. Workstation-000, Workstation-001, etc). To use this option, you should choose the pattern from the Base Name drop-down and replace either the prefix, or the suffix, or both for whatever value you need. In our example, the base-name pattern will be "Workstation-<NUMBER>". The <NUMBER> will be replaced for the numbers of the range determined by the configuration that you can set below the Base Name field.

Group of Computers

Having specified the group, you should press Add to proceed.
