no, that's absolutely not relevant to you at all. you've not even told us what language you're using, most have a system() or exec() function though.

hi acid,

i'm not asking about how to execute a program within a program. fyi i'm using python. what i'm saying is this ...

i have a (python) script on one machine. the (python) script wants to run another (python) script on another machine.

so do i try out the 'mount' command?

thanks!

no not really, either you know what the mount command does or you don't, i'd suggest a bit of background reading... if you mount a file system then anythign exectued on that filessytem is done on the machine it is started on, i.e. the local machine. if you want to run a remote command, i'd suggest using ssh or rexec.
