Ok... Here's the gist.... I want to make a "slave" program (service or standard executable) that takes orders from a master program on the same subnet of local ip's.
Here's the flow:
slaves running on 55 pc's,  master running on 1-3 admin stations. (current login user doesn't have domain admin rights but can elevate if necessary)
 
scenario 1
Master sends message to slave for user.
Slave gets confirmation from user sends message back to master
Master sends command to slave.
Slave behaves one way until Master releases Slave with another command

scenario 1
Master doesn't care about user input or no user present.
Master sends command to slave.
Slave behaves one way until Master releases Slave with another command

This doesn't seem like a question.  Are you wondering if this is possible?  How you would go about doing it? Or something else.
