I would know if there is a command to reset a Raspberry Pi without enter it with remote desktop (some like "reset user=Pi pass=Password" or similar)

The problem is: I have a Raspberry Pi inside a network, and when I reset it, it runs automatically Chromium with a start page. If the start page is not running correctly, the user would reset it from his computer, but he don't know how to use the remote desktop, so I need to make a program/script in VBscript for the user, who can run it (from his desktop) and this program/scrtipt makes a reset in the Raspberry.

Thank you very much.

    Are you prepared to use SSH?

    The easiest way would be to do it via SSH. Putty can be run from the command line. You can script command line commands in VBScript. OR better yet, fix the start page that doesn't load correctly.

  • I think i'm prepared to use ssh, but I must verify it. I can't fix the page, so it's a webserver who runs the page. If the webserver is not started yet, the start page crashes....
