Restart option in menu

Post by chad » Thu Jun 07, 2018 4:49 pm

Is there an option to add a restart item in the menu. Using the turnoffmenu=on, this adds a Turn OFF the computer menu option, but it would be nice to allow the user to restart as well. Essentially, if I make a change to the config file for a particular unit, it needs to be restarted for those changes to take affect. Yes I can do it remotely, but if a user is in the middle of something, it would be beneficial for me to call them up and tell them to restart when they are finished doing whatever they are doing so that the updated config gets pushed to their computer.

With current version such config should work:

connection
server=192.169.1.1
connection
application=shutdown

It adds "shutdown" to menu.

If we make reboot in the same way as shutdown, will it be ok for you?

I also need a reboot option in infobox. The parameter infobox = reboot instead of infobox = shutdown would be perfect! Will it be in the next update?
