How to run a 3rd partyh script by remote

Posted on 2006-06-03

I have a script that I made that I want to run on a remote windows server with lunarpages.

They say that I can't remote into a windows server,
but have a Plesk Control Panel to use.

I've transferred the script to the server, but need help to run the this.

Thank you

    You have a couple options worth considering.

    1. Telnet into the box and run the script using one of the following:
    cscript.exe for CLI execution
    wscript.exe for GUI execution (and if it was written for such)
    or use the OS command interpreter cmd.exe if the script is *.bat or *.cmd

    2. If you are running a Windows box, I suggest you consider using a free utility created by Mark Russinovich, called psexec.exe.
    Using this utility from the command line allows you to execute an app or script on a remote system.

    i.e. from a command line...psexec \\servername scriptfile.cmd

    I don't know a way to use Plesk to accomplish this.

    Good luck!

    It seems that no remote is possible with them.

    And their tech has to install and run the script.
    Which they charge an additional $75.

    It sounds a bit expensive to me.

    Does anyone know of a flexible windows hosting?

    Sorry for the delay.

    It's just the hosting company was just not flexible enough.
    So, I decided to put a server into a colocation.

    But thanks for the info!
    This will helped me decide to try on my own.
