Re: Can command line be sent from Linux to Windows?
To answer your first question I don't know but I can give you some alternatives (since I do this type of testing myself).
I could tell you that there are some winsock/bsd solutions out there (which I do use) .. but that may be a tad more complex then you want. A potentially simpler solution
involves a file system that would be open to linux and Windows even Solaris (via samba).
Why not have a subfolder on a shared drive for every windows machine you want to start this way. Then have a simple utilty create a
command file to start a test on the linux side.
The name of the test could be part of that test name created in linux or be part of the file content. Either way to prevent collisions you could create a file name (from linux) with a unique time stamp and host name like so:
where TimeStamp = 20001114103454
hostName = name of linux machine
The windows machines could have a process running to look for these files every five minutes or so. A bit primitive but it could span input from every os under your companies roof.
