What does "run a script to a remote linux machine" mean to you?
Can you re-phrase that?


Cheers,
Tink

Hi,
With remote linux machine i just meant a server machine running on linux. Usually i log on the linux server by citrix ica client from windows and run my required scripts. I just want to run the required scripts with some automated program/script in windows (without logging in via citrix).
Thanks.

Well ... you'll need to connect to the machine SOMEHOW to run
something on it.
There's ssh as a good option, you can even run things w/o
an interactive login session, e.g.
Code:

ssh user@host "/path/to/script parameter"

Cheers,

From Windows, you may want to look into the putty ssh client to do as Tinkster suggests. See http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/.

The plink utility is the command line version in the putty suite.
