RUNRMTCMD to execute a command

Referring to your answer to the question posed on 06 February 2001, I tried to use RUNRMTCMD to execute a command at NT4.0 server. But I received following message in response at AS/400. 'A remote host refused an attempted connect operation.' 'Command did not complete successfully.' Could you teach me what I need to set up at NT4.0 side?

You must setup the remote exec daemon on the NT server. Here are several options:

* install remote command service from Client Access.
* install remote command daemon from NT resource kit
* buy rexec daemon for NT from (very cheap)

The rexec daemon should be started after installation. The startup and configuration of the daemon are based on the option you choose.
