Executing external programs in Windows from UNIX

Hi all,

I would like to call an external program in Windows box from UNIX box. I tried to create a command in SM69, specify the command and OS type to Windows. When I try to execute the command in SM49, I got an error 'program_start_error'.

I tried also to create an RFC destination in SM59, using connection type = T (start external program via TCP/IP), specifying the program in the Program field and specify the Windows box hostname (or IP add) in the Target host. But this also seemed could not work.

Is there any other ways I could do this?

Thank you.
