Execute scripts remotely - help

Recommended Posts

Aarstad

Hey guys.

Do you know of an already written software that has clients connected to a main server? I am looking for a method to have multiple windows xp 64 bit machines connected to one master server (hopefully one with a login).

When the master server assigns an execute of the autoit script, all the clients should react instantly. It would be best to have it remotely execute scripts, but remotely executing compiled exe files would be great as well.

I have tried searching, but to no avail. The fact is that I think this can be scripted in autoit itself - but i lack the knowledge and experience to code it myself. I use autoit for simple execution on multiple machines that should have the same settings based on what my boss requests me too.

We manually do this by logmein at the moment, but its 200 machines, so it takes forever (even something as tedious as setting X value to new X value).

I am not an expert so if i am wrong some one please corect me

Lookup

TCPConnect()
TCPSend()
TCPRecv()

Then we must be on the same level. I have also read about tcpsend and receive. I also looked at a couple of example scripts that does the job close to what I want it to. However I do not understand how it works, and instead of spending a lot of time learning it i rather have a software that could replicate the expectations.

TCPsend and receive should be set with "array" or something to work with multiple machines, but i am still very confused and i cant seem to grasp it.

Regarding whether it can be done purely with AutoIt or not, it depends on your script. Can you please explain further what you would like to do on these machines?

Purely with autoit is by no means necessary. This is the logic:

Client connects to a server (master pc). When server says jump (ie. run exe on dropbox), clients jump.

IP addresses are not preferred, but login details for both server admin and clients are preferred.

Edit: I see I posted this thread in a forum that are questions related to autoit. This might have to be moved to another thread. The question at hand is mostly about a software that allows me to remotely execute scripts i have created with autoit.

Is there such a software that allows clients to connect to an ip address, and wait for simple execute commands? I have searched for guides on psexec but none of it makes sense. From what i gathered psexec tries to run scripts by connecting to an ip address. but ip addresses change and when its 200 machines that will become a nightmare..

server on ONE ip address(something.no-ip.org.

X amount of clients connect to the ONE ip address.

ONE ip address has a gui that shows X amount of clients connected.

ONE ip address has the possibility to run exe, batch or autoit scripts on X amount of clients that are connected.

It seems so simple in my head, but I might be explaining this in a terrible way.

ok here my test script it needs more work but i think it does a part of what you want

Send Command

send_data()

Func send_data()


#include <ButtonConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>

TCPStartup()
Local $cs, $data
Local $ip = "192.168.0.105" ;ip from my local network change to your local ip
Local $port = 33891

$cs = -1

$cs = TCPConnect($ip, $port)

#region ### START Koda GUI section ### Form=
$Form1 = GUICreate("Form1", 615, 438, 192, 124)
$Button1 = GUICtrlCreateButton("Run Notepad", 8, 8, 203, 121)
GUISetState(@SW_SHOW)
#endregion ### END Koda GUI section ###


If @error Then
MsgBox(0, "Error", "Error code : " & @error)
Else
While 1
$nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
Switch $nMsg
Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
Exit
Case $Button1
$data = "notepad.exe" ;>>>>the command to send to the server
If @error Or $data = "" Then ExitLoop

TCPSend($cs, BinaryToString($data, 4))
If @error Then ExitLoop

EndSwitch
WEnd
EndIf
EndFunc ;==>send_data

Recive Command

recive_data()

Func recive_data()
Local $ip = "192.168.0.105" ;ip from my local network change to your local ip
Local $port = 33891
Local $cs, $ms
Local $recive

TCPStartup()

$ms = TCPListen($ip, $port)
If $ms = -1 Then Exit

$cs = -1
Do
$cs = TCPAccept($ms)
Until $cs <> -1

While 1
$recive = TCPRecv($cs, 2048)
If @error Then ExitLoop
$recive = BinaryToString($recive, 4)

If $recive <> "" Then Run($recive) ;>>>>The command to execute (command recived)
WEnd

If $cs <> -1 Then TCPCloseSocket($cs)

TCPShutdown()

EndFunc ;==>recive_data

Sorry if my english is not 100%

You can you WMI in autoit script.

$objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts://" & $server & "/root/cimv2")

Interesting.. I can definitely modify this a bit and tweak it to my liking. Many thanks for this!! I am sorry for replying so late, but I did not get a response e mail from this. Again much thanks!
