It can be done - but, you need to know what protocol you are going to use to
connect to the remote server? Telnet? ssh? rlogin? There are 3rd party
components that can handle all of these...

Most modern *nix systems are using ssh for secure connection - so, even using
something like putty and it's commandline ssh client can be done :)

Tom;

I think I am going to use telnet
I need the piece that allows me to connect and remotely execute script in a
Unix (AIX) box
Can you please show me some products that can do this?
Thanks

Well, Bill any com or .net component that can handle telnet (suprising, telnet
is really falling out of fashion these days). For example:

Indy.Sockets (clr) (I think this one has telnet support - but I maybe wrong)
http://www.indyproject.org/index.en.aspx

Catalyst SocketWrench

/n-software has a bunch of internet tools as well (this one also supports
rexec)

Google should help you out here.
