Launching applications in unix from .net? How

P: n/a
Hello,

I work at a company that has 2 development enviroments. One Unix which i
dont know anything about and the othe vs.net 03 with MSSQL server 2000 for
db. How can i cause applications (scripts) to get run in unix while using
preferably vb.net or c# applications run in windows. So far all the unix
aplications are started manualy through the command window. Files are sent
using FTP. We have XceedFTP client to send files to unix from win
programaticaly but how can we start applications in unix?

Thank you in advance.

You're questions is really a Unix question. Not a .Net question. You'd be
better off trying to find a Unix or Linux forum to ask how you can trigger
an application to launch remotely.

That said. I can think of a couple ways. You could build a simple server
that runs on your Unix machine and accepts commands to start applications.
You could build an app that constantly polls a database for instruction,
then submit instructions to the DB from your .Net app. You could initiate
an SSH session to the Unix box and launch them directly.

I would go find a unix group and ask your question there before trying to
implement any of my 3 ideas. There's likely already a solution to do what
you need that someone versed in unix can recommend.
