Hi Guys,

I am writing a program to manage several scripts that I run on several differnt windows boxes.

Is it possible to execute something on another machine.  I.E from server A I want to execute a program on server B.  

I know I could simply call soon.exe from within the program but would prefer it done internally.

thanks

Create a program that runs in the background and as soon as you send a question like "Run program xxxx", run it.

Another way (internal in windows) there is not, except maybe if you go via some buffer overflows or so (because it is an enormous breach of security if you could run a program from server A on server B).

My first thoughts were to create a small listening app that waited for a request and then ran it but that would mean having to install stuff on server b to start with.  
There must be a way to do it becuase I have seen several products do it.  I.E Hyena remotely installs VNC onto another machine and then runs it.  
I have domain admin rights to the network I am working in so permissions won't be an issue.
