Remotely shutdown/restart Windows via Linux on Debian/Ubuntu based Linux

Need samba-common package
sudo apt-get install samba-common

Then use this command to shutdown the computer remotely:
net rpc shutdown --ipaddress ip --user username%password

Add -r if you want to restart, not shutdown:
net rpc shutdown -r --ipaddress ip --user username%password

Success message:
