Which ports do I need to open on the firewall to allow Remote Shutdown to work?

You need to open 135-139 ports and all ports above 1024 for incoming and outgoing packets:

  • Port 135 (TCP) - for Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Service
  • Port 137 (UDP) - for NetBIOS Name Service
  • Port 138 (UDP) - for NetBIOS Netlogon and Browsing
  • Port 139 (TCP) - for NetBIOS session (NET USE)
  • Ports above 1024 (TCP) - for RPC Communication.
  • DCOM needs open UDP ports in the 1024-5000 range. How to configure DCOM to listen to a specific ports range

Remote Shutdown works like any other standard Windows NT/2000/XP administrative tool (such as Event Viewer, Services, Computer Management, etc.) so, if these tools work then Remote Shutdown will work, too.
