Hi, I have already known, that I can use freeware psexec to remote execution on windows 2000 from another machine. Unfortunately, psexec need admin privs for their user which is become our problem. How do I remote execution like psexec but without admin privs (as I login as usual user).
Many thanks for help.

Administrator privs are required because of security needs - if any user could run any exe on another pc then there would be no security.

There is a utility in the Windows 2000 resource tools that allows you to remotely run command line programs remotely, it's called Remote Command Service, have you also tried the runas feature, which allows you to log on as a normal user but still run .exe as an admin?

If you have the W2k Resource Kit, have a look at "Remote Console". You still need "one-time" administrative access to the target machine for the software setup and the security configuration of the software. Without any sort of administrative access to the target machine, you won't be able to run any program remotely.
