Running a remote application

5 posts in this topic

Hello All.

I am familiar with AutoIt for exactly 2 days :mellow:

I have a question.

I managed to run a local application according to the example in the help file.

But I need to run a remote application, on a remote host.

I saw that I can built actually 2 scripts using sockets: a client and a server which may help me with this task. But isn't there a shorter way to operate an executable on a remote host by supplying its name and address?

Thanks!

You have to kick off the remote exe from the remote PC. You just can't launch it remotely. That is a big nono in Windows Security. Can you tell us just what you are attempting? We know you want to run a EXE on a remote PC. More info on why you need to do it would help a bunch. For example, you may want to update drivers, install software, or something else. There may be a better solution available so understanding what you have in mind would help.

I need to write some kind of a manager or a controller which should launch 1-N applications on remote servers. The bottom line is automation of tests.
