    Does anyone know of a windows application that automatically restarts a PC when an internet connection is no longer detected? I searched Google for an hour and did not find a single app that does this.

    I'm surprised there is not a bigger demand for this... I run a server farm and I need the ability to restart a server (pc) if the internet connection is offline beyond x amount of time.

    thanks

    Maybe because people usually do not have to restart a computer just cause of a network interruption ? :)

    Windows is crap as server but not that bad.

    What sort of connection do you have ?
    You say it's a server-farm, that sounds like hosted servers ?
    A hosted server should never have downtimes, maybe someone is stealing your IPs and causing address conflicts ?

    Short words: Find the reason for your downtimes!
    You usually have an SLA contract, you can ask for money if your servers are offline for more than 1 or 0.5% of a month, depending on your contract.

    It's not hard to create such application on Windows.

    In my case if the connection is dropped, the only culprit would be the remote control software has crashed which means the PC would need to be restarted. The servers are located in-house.

    I have seen utilities that will reboot a pc once the cpu activity drops below a certain level. Maybe you could use that? If the remote software crashes, then cpu level should drop, right?

    PC anywhere.

    or invest in a router with vpn and shut down systems remotely and buy a wake on lan supported mobo and network card..


    Smart network admins been doing this remotely for years.. why you think your IT guy is always "away"

    hes at home sleeping, drinking or eating =)
