Executing commands remotely to NT from Linux

I want to execute some commands from a remote Linux system to an NT system. I know there is a way to do this from NT to NT (but I can't remember the Microsoft name for this). But I need to do it from a Linux system. Any ideas?

What is REXEC?
rexec stands for remote exec and like rsh, allows you to execute non-interactive programs on another system.  The difference between rsh and rexec is that rexec requires you to specify a valid password for the other system and rsh does not.

The other system must be running a remote exec daemon (rexecd) to handle the incoming rexec command.  Most Unix and Linux systems include a remote exec daemon, but Windows does not.  Use Denicomp's Winsock REXECD/95 or Winsock REXECD/NT software if you want to rexec into a Windows system.

But, I suppose RSH may be what you're after...depends on what you're wanting to do...

What is RSH?
rsh stands for remote shell and allows you to execute non-interactive programs on another system. On some systems, this command is sometimes called remsh or rcmd.  It executes the command on the other system and returns the program's standard output and standard error output.

The other system must be running a remote shell daemon (rshd) to handle the incoming rsh command.  Unix and Linux systems include a remote shell daemon, but Windows does not.  Use Denicomp's Winsock RSHD/95 or Winsock RSHD/NT software if you want to rsh to a Windows system.

The rsh command does not require you to enter a password for the other system. Trust is established by defining host equivalency.

Microsoft says this "An RSH service called Rshsvc.exe is provided with the Windows 2000 Server Resource Kit. Used without parameters, rsh displays help."

Does this mean I can use REXEC on Linux and Window's RSH to execute programs on Windows from Linux?

I mean, use REXEC on Linux to submit commands to Window's Rshsvc.exe?
