Are you sure that XP is responding?

Are you sure that you have a telnet server running on your XP box? Nearly all Windows versions do not have server functionality that you expect by default from *nix operating systems. You would have to get a telnet server for windows off the net. I'm sure you could find a free one very easily.

May your tongue cleave to the roof of your mouth with the force of a thousand caramels.

    Actually, I am not sure. I will check shortly (I think I made a bad assumption it was running). I'm a bit new to running Perl in a Windows env. Would you have any recommendations besides using a telnet server ?

    To explain my situation, from a master server I want to be able to run scripts on a remote windows system. Initially I thought rsh was the way to go, so then I thought about writing a client/server app, but if I can help it, I don't want a remote system to have the dependancy of running a script and "listening" for commands to execute.

    I've also been told ssh and SOAP::Lite might be worth considering.
