Hi all,

How can i execute a program in another computer, using IP and TCP/IP connection ??? Is there a way??

I'm using WinXP in both machines.
First, i get the IP of the machine, and use Ping to know if the machine is active. Soon after, i need to execute a program in that machine using the IP and TCP/IP connection.

Anyone have idea?

You need to have a Client and Server module.

The server runs on the remote machine and the client connects, then you can send commands, Have a look at www.pscode.com for some source code examples.

Or you could just run the socket server that has been shipped with Delphi, and then use DCOM to launch your apps.

Mario Cantou's (sp?) Mastering Delphi books.  Or you can pick up some books at Borders or something.  You can google search for DCOM on the internet, however it is a very dufficult subject to master, and the information on the internet is mostly written for the experienced COM/DCOM programmer.  You may want to find a book on begining DCOM or something like that.  Good luck with your project.
