For a login script that runs on the windows machine when the user logs in, that's part of Samba:


But what you want, I suppose, is a linux copy of psexec.

Let me know if you find one, I don't know of anything that can launch programs remotely on windows, except psexec on windows.

I think psexec uses RPC; It's possible that someone somewhere can reverse engineer psexec and reimplem-  Pardon?

Oh, ok.  In news just to hand, someone smarter than me has made one for us both!


Never used it of course, so can't comment on robustness etc etc.  Looks like it's source code only ATM.  Good Luck!
