Remote command

P: n/a
I'd like to write a small script fro windows clients (XP). The script would
just wait for the commands from outside. That means that I'd be able to run
for instance notepad from my linux machine!

Can you give me some pointers of direction and language to choose. Where to
start my search for knowledge? Is it possible to do this with C?

Thanks for helping,
Boris

Are you sure that there is no program/protocol out there that does that
already?

Maybe. However, C is off-topic in this group; and so are scripting
languages. Here, we discuss standard C++ only. And to answer the next
obvious follow up question right away, in C++ you would have to rely on
OS-specific libraries for doing what you want. There is a C++ library FAQ
somewhere out there on the net that may contain pointers. Other than that,
those libraries are off-topic in this group and you would need to inquire
in news groups dedicated to your target platform.
