Start and Stop service on remote server programatically

I need to be able to start and stop a service on another computer on
the network. But I cannot connect to the other computer using my
standard user credentials. I have a separate login for that for which
I use Remote Desktop to connect to the other machine.

The other machine is a test server where my Windows Service application
is running. It is an inconvenience to have to connect through Remote
Desktop just to start and stop the service.

I would like to create a small app with a single button that I can use
to simply stop the service and start it as needed.

How can I connect to the remote machine using the appropriate
credentials programatically so that my program impersonates the correct
user account on the other machine?

Thanks,

Check out the System.ServiceP rocess.ServiceC ontroller. It is designed for
what you want.

Yes, I am familiar with that part. What is not apparent is how to
impersonate a different user on the remote machine. I have figured
that out.
