Hi all

help 4 calling a unix command in a server from Visual Basic Client

I have been developing softwate using informix on SCO UNIX platform. After compilation informix produces *.4ge program. It will work like as any unix command. and if i am running *.4ge program from server, it produces some reports. That I can display in windows client by using ftp.

From server I can get reports to windows client using ftp.

Now I am designing some gui in Visual Basic. and my question is how can i run that unix command when the user click a button from windows client to show the report in the windows client itself ?.

tanks in advance

SCO Unix has an rexec daemon running on port 512 for remotely executing commands. Check out this example:
