I'm not even sure that this is the correct forum to post this question, so please feel free to redirect me if it isn't.
I've been tasked with something that seems just short of impossible (for me) to do. Bottom line: I have to allow anybody with a browser to get onto our website and, with a click of the mouse, run a specific program or batch file. The problem is that our website is hosted on Ubuntu (a LAMP server) and the program is a Windows executable, located on a Windows server, both of which are in our facility.
I can easily share files between the two servers, but if I attempt to use, say, PHP to call the program, it simply can't, of course, because the PHP is running on the Ubuntu server and attempting to run a Windows program. Thoughts?
