Kicking off SilkTest from a remote machine.

Hi All,
Really not sure where exactly the question belongs.
I need to kick off a SilkTest script on a remote machine from my local machine. SilkTest is installed on the remote machine and all the scripts reside there. I tried to issue the command from a telnet session, did not work. Tried to put the kick off command into a batch file and called that batch file from the telnet session, did not work. The script is unable to start the Internet Explorer when called like this. How may I run the SilkTest script command remotely on that machine?

Hello Brian,
Although my provided links will not explain how to do it using a telnet session, I can imagine that more info could be retrieved by the tool supplier (Segue).
For this I could think of a PAQ to me.
Looking further if it contributes to the EE solution database, I would rather say no, since it is normaly obvious to get in contact with the tool supplier.
In that case I suggest: Deletion and no refund.
