Hi, I wish to add a linux system user on one box from a web request from a ms iis site on another.  Ie the user enters his name on the iis website and a user is added on the linux box, ideally this will be secure so only my site can add this user.  Any ideas would be appreciated and ideally a barebones simple solution.

thx

You can install webmin on your Linux box http://www.webmin.com/ and call URL for useradd from your Windows IIS server using some ASP pages.
