Using http/https and a webserver, you can link this via the old-school CGI gateway model... or rewrite them as active listeners and link them with trigger, events or system calls from almost any modern web server, apache, Node-js, etc

Hi Jignesh,

I don't know if this would meet your needs, but an alternative could be to install
phpshell, which runs in PHP and allows webpage visitors to login and issue some UNIX commands from a command prompt.  But note this from the above URL:
"There are some limitations on what kind of programs you can run. It won't do no good if you start a graphical program like Firefox or even a console based one like vi. All programs have to be strictly command line programs, and they will have no chance of getting user input after they have been launched."

Is that the kind of think you're after?  If not, how is it lacking?
