Client/Server software - SCO

Hi, Bit of a strange question...Does anybody know of any software that allows commands to be executed on a client PC? Years ago, I used a package called PC-Connect with Solaris that was able to fire up Acrobat or Excel to view reports created on the Unix box. But I'm unable to find anything about it on the net, nor do I know if it's available for SCO at all. We're running OpenSever 5.0.5, and Win2k on our PC's. Thanks for any help, Scott....

    We do this via the terminal emulator.
    We create a samba (or visionfs share) and then call the windows application
    and point it at the file on the share. The guide below is for the older
    emulators - most of them have the ability to use whatever is setup in
    the Windows registry to associate the application with the extension so
    it is a little easier now.

    Have a look at http://www.tkrh.demon.co.uk/run-win.html

    It's a nifty little feature that helps merge Desktop applications
    into a character based Unix application.

    Thanks.
    Forgot to mention, we're using Vandyke's CRT for emulation here, do you know
    if it's possible to do anything with that?

    It's not an emulator I have come across so no idea - anything in the manual
    on it?
