Hi mealo,

For this I can advise you to use the components of François Piette (cardware).
There is also a mailing list available for questions. And there are a lot of question about the subject you want.

Go to his site, download the components and prepared FQA lists and check it out. It's really great component colection!

Hope this helps you further & good luck!

Regards, Zif.

Rshell and Rexec are components for remoting unix (Not freeware).
