KDM - Howto reboot a remote XTerminal?

Hi folks!

I've got a pool of X-Terminals, which are boind via query-XDCMP to a rather 
big server. 
The intuitive way to reboot such a xterminal would be to configure KDM to 
show a reboot/shutdown option. 

kdmrc has the fields:


When leaving this untouched, the user reboots the server, which is 
definitely not what he (and me as the admin) wants.

Is there some variable or place holder for the IP of the terminal that kdm 
I though of something like

HaltCmd=/usr/local/sbin/halt_terminal.sh $REMOTEIP
RebootCmd=/usr/local/sbin/reboot_terminal.sh $REMOTEIP

with both scripts sending the actual reboot/halt command via 
rsa-authenticated ssh-commands to the actual terminal.

Thanks in advance
