Remotely Execute Commands

I am a sysadmin on a domain, and I am looking to remotely execute a program.  I tried rsh and rexec, but each time I attempt it, I get a Connection Refused, Can't Establish Connection error.  I thought that rexec would work because it authenticates first, but it was a no go.  I know that 3rd party software can do this, so I would figure that has to be a way to do it with Windows 2000 default tools.

Any ideas?

hmm i never tested that rexec but it soundz similar to psexec..
well get yourself a copy of psexec ==> http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/psexec.shtml

and try if it works with it..
make sure that your admin$ shares are enabled on every pc you want to remote execute

sometimes just running a net use \\ip\Admin$ helps..
