Arduino to remotely reset a crashed miner

I have set up an Arduino (Arduino Uno + Ethernet Shield + Relay Shield) to remotely reset crashed miners. At a crashed state, no software can be executed and no remote connection (using TeamViewer, Remote Desktop) is stablished.

The relays control the "Reset SW" on the motherboard to allow the hard reset of any of the machines by setting the appropriate relay to "high". The arduino can be accessed from the network via .html (using a internet browser) to change the state of the relays. This setup is for 4 relays but it can also be implemented with more relays (Enclosure won't fit though)

The issue is discussed here: http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=214241.0. The code was taken from: https://www.proto-pic.co.uk/content/arduino/Ether_Relay.zip

    how do you select the rig to reboot when there is more than 1 rig connected? or you have it all predetermined in your program?
    I need to make this for 20+ rigs and I am confused a bit.
