If this is on Linux I would just setup SSH keys and run a script that halts
each other machine at its own runlevel 0.

On Windows, you could I know that shutdown commands can be sent via WMI (
http://code.activestate.com/recipes/360649/). There's a package on Ubuntu
called 'wmi-client' which I believe is a standalone package based on code
taken from Samba.
