Hi Tinkster, thank you for responding.
Well, the situation is like this:
- a linux box with a samba share (server) is running gqview - fullscreen in a loop. The machine will be out of reach, boots and shuts down automatically.
- from a windows machine, pictures are added and removed from that samba share.
From a batch script on the windows pc, I would like to be able to start/stop the presentation for adding/removing pictures and boot (wol), reboot and shutdown the linux box.
I hope the situation is more clear now.
