running programs on a windows machine from linux


Im not sure if this is even possable but ill ask anyway

I have a windows machine "not by my choice" that has a scheudeled task that sometimes doesnt run correctly and needs to be done manually. I have 3 linux boxes on my network that have samba-3.0.3-1 installed on them. Is it possable for me to log into my linux box and run the bat file that didnt run properly or is this just a dream that is not possable

Have a look at VNC - You should have it with Red Hat and only need to install the server on your windows machine. You will be seeing your windows machine desktop . Just don't make your DOS session full screen.

Have Fun,

If your M$ boxes are servers, what version are they then? You could just install terminal server or if it is a 2003 box, use Remote Desktop. On your Linux box you would then install tsclient (terminal server client) and connect to the M$ with that.

I'm assuming then that you don't have the term server edition

How about allowing telnet on the NT machine, you could launch the bat from a telnet session.

Telnet is never an option for security reasons. Install Cygwin and its SSH service and you can SSH into your Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 box and run scheduler or NET commands just like you log in to a Linux server.

If you are using a WAN or not firewalled then correct, you should not use Telnet. However, if you are on a private LAN, there is nothing wrong with telnet. Depends on your layout. If there is noone on your network that you need to worry about capturing your plain text telnet, there isn't a reason to use the system resources for SSH then.
