Execute batch file from workstation on server

Last Modified: 2015-04-28
Is there a way to execute a batch file on a server from a workstation?

I need to execute the following command from a workstation on the server while running Syncback from the workstation. The reason is that the users will manually run a Syncback profile form the Workstation

"C:\Program Files\Pervasive Software\PSQL\PBA\BIN\pvbackup.exe" -on

"C:\Program Files\Pervasive Software\PSQL\PBA\BIN\pvbackup.exe" -off

The Pervasive backup agent is installed on the server. Basically the users will make a local copy of the database on 5 different computers with Syncback installed a few times a month.
