Does anybody knows how to execute files like (*.exe) on a remote machine, the file resides on windows 2000 Server and i need to excute that file from a windows 2000 prof.

Does windows has any imbedded command that does this?


Thanks.

Please explain your intentions, why would you need to execute a program remotely?

is it within ur LAN or out side ur lan?

I guess u can do some scripting (i m not sure)

anyhow u can also use many remote control software, but it requires u to install a host in the server 1st

say PCanywhere

VNC:

you may use a remote access s/w like PC Anywhere or VNC to take control over a remote system and do any task.
But still why do you need to do this?

clarification:  do you want to run an EXE that resides on another machine's hardware, on your machine,  (Simply run the excutable from \\server\share\path\exefile.exe)

-OR-

do you want to direct another computer to run code?

If you want to direct another computer, use PsExec.exe from Sysinternals (freeware, http://www.sysinternals.com;  you will need administrative access and a fair understanding of NT networkng)
