how to send message to a process (script)?!

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I plan to make a "server like" application which will run on many computers and it shall somehow "wait for orders" ;) It should run/install programs and commands which will be supplied from a server. Currently I don't see any other way then to periodically check for example some INI file on the harddisk and do what I will write there some other way. Or to put this file on a shared folder and make script periodically check it there, so I would be able to control all the "endpoints" from one settings and commands file. BUT I am not quite content with this periodicall checking some files to check what to do :lmao: It would cause unnecessary network traffic and besides I think there must be some other way to send some kind of message to a process. Is there any possibility in AutoIt to receive such message from another process?

I don´t know, if i understand it, totally. But you´ll have an autoit script on several computers waiting for doing a specific thing. You don´t want to check the script for commands all the time.

So :

1. Are you able to start the script over the network? (Only if needed o:) )

2. Do you have things to do every time(day, specific time), then you could start the script with a scheduler.

Hope that helps, otherwise ... (let us know, what´s the point)

So long,

Mega

Um. How about psexec.exe along with the TCP/IP functions. That should do what you want.
