Remote Listener on Windows


This is slightly off topic for all the other forums so I thought I'd give it a try in here.

I have a perl script that resides on one of my old Windows NT4 servers, I want to invoke this from a remote network location.

To explain the scenario further I'll start at the front end. I have a Unix box that I'm running Oracle HTMLDB on and it's serving an application created on it. The application sends a command to a remote listener on a different unix box to interact with my database (it's actually backing up data).

Once this process has been called, I want to invoke my perl script on my windows box from the same application that's running on the webserver to backup the Oracle forms directory, but guess I need some kind of process or listener waiting for the request?

Does anyone know of a way I can do this?



If it aint broke then don't try to fix it
