    For those of us who have multiple systems with licensed copies of Take
    Command it would be very useful to have an implementation of Remote
    Procedure Call (RPC), allowing the local copy of TCC to initiate the
    execution of a TCC command or batch file on a remote machine. While many
    operations on the remote machine's file system are possible by simply
    mapping one or more of its disk volumes into local drive letters, there are
    even some file system operations not permitted in that manner, e.g.,
    creation or deletion of file links (junctions, reparse points, hard links,
    etc.) or modifying file time stamps. Of course, operations other than those
    relating to the remote file system (e.g. anything relating to processes on
    the remote system) cannot be done at all. While such things can be done
    through other means, it would be useful to me, and I presume to many others,
    esp. those who have system or network administrator positions, to be able to
    perform such actions directly within the Take Command framework.

    What's wrong with the existing REXEC and RSHELL?

    The section of HELP topic rexec.htm (and the virtually identical one in
    topic rshell.htm) which states:
    "Note: Windows does not include the rexec service, so you will need to get
    one from a third-party and install it on the remote system before executing
    REXEC."

    In other words, we need a TCMD implementation of the rexec and rshell
    services to use REXEC and RSHELL to perform actions on the remote system.

    Not to dismiss your request, but have you looked at Sysinternals PsExec
    utility?

    From their web site:
    Utilities like Telnet and remote control programs like Symantec's PC
    Anywhere let you execute programs on remote systems, but they can be a
    pain to set up and require that you install client software on the remote
    systems that you wish to access. PsExec is a light-weight
    telnet-replacement that lets you execute processes on other systems,
    complete with full interactivity for console applications, without having
    to manually install client software. PsExec's most powerful uses include
    launching interactive command-prompts on remote systems and
    remote-enabling tools like IpConfig that otherwise do not have the ability
    to show information about remote systems.

    Or, you can download one of the 10,000 free REXEC / RSHELL services, and
    have it today.
