The NT Resource Kit comes with a utility that lets you run dos commands on an NT server from a remote workstation.  It's called rcmd.exe

It seems that you can only run this from NT wks.  Is there a way to run it from Win9x?

Win 95 does not include that kind of functionality.
However, there are a host of other shareware utilities that will let you do similar stuff.
Or something like PC Anywhere if you need a commerical solution.
You could probably scrape by with a simple telnet / ftp daemon : one I've found. Looks OK.

I need something that works EXACTLY like rcmd.  Nothing more nothing less.

nope, rcmd uses named pipes which are unavailable on Win9x
