Thanx to daniweb and all the posters. I have created a program for viewing process and hardware information on windows platform. Now i want to run this program on remote machine. How can i do this. I have administrator permission on that machine. Making dll of this program would help me because on network how can i execute exe file. Thanx in Advance.

Hello Jason,

Simply speaking you cannot execute any application on a remote machine. There are many problems doing this. Apart from the implementation limitations there are some major security risks.

However, you can use a utility called PSEXEC(http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553.aspx) to do this. It internally installs a service on the remote computer and ports your executable there and runs it.

you could do a remote login on the remote computer, assuming you have a user name and password on that machine. I've seen this done by network administrators at my old office, but I don't know exactly how they did it. I suppose another way is to use PCAnywhere by Symantic.

if your program is console based (no gui), you could use telnet. server versions of windows ship with a telnet server. all current versions of windows ship with a telnet client. see http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/ddf8b035-9035-475c-ae50-1d97bde83dba1033.mspx

you could also use several third party telnet server programs. eg. http://www.kpym.com/en/Overview.htm
putty is a very poular telnet client http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

for gui access, you could use Remote Desktop (available only with professional/business versions). http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/mobility/getstarted/remoteintro.mspx

Thanx to all. That was very useful information. In every technic it requires to pre configuration on every machine which is supposed to remotely access. I want to develop generic application so it use basic authentication of windows in every machine it would work without any pre configuration. I have authority on every machine but i want to access all that machine remotely using jni application. I might be wrong please guide me.I want to develop intranet application like psexec for windows. And thanx in advance
