After download and extract the zip file and extract to “C” Drive or any location. Then go to the command prompt in the pstool extracted location. For example c:\pstool.

In the command prompt the below syntax command will be used for login to remote system.

You can get uptime easily using uptime command. If you are not using windows 7/2008/vista, you need to download this utility. You can use powershell also to get uptime
