Need more details, but assuming you're using Windows, I offer you this code to be used with psexec.

;  Remote Command Prompt.au3

$remoteName = InputBox ("Computer Name", "Enter the remote computer name to manage through a command prompt window on your desktop.")
$remoteName = "\\" & $remoteName
If $remoteName = "\\" Then Exit
ShellExecute ("C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe", "/admin")
WinWait ("Administrator:")
Send ("psexec " & $remoteName & " cmd{ENTER}")

It opens a remote command prompt that allows you to do anything you could do if you were sitting at the remote console looking at a command prompt.  You'll need psexec.exe on your system and the remote system (system32 folder would work nicely).

Good luck,


Meds.  They're not just for breakfast anymore. :'(
