Another way would be to have a share which has a subdirectory. Put
in the parent directory a flag file or files (program1, program2,
etc). Have a daemon running on the samba server (a bash script would
do) watching the subdirectory. Then, to run a program, move the program
flag file from the parent directory to the subdirectory. The daemon sees it,
reads the program name, runs the program and moves the program flag file
back to the parent directory.
