zaheer, i'll outline the general funda of how this would be done.

The main problem here is that the processes are on different hosts.

So basically this boils down to 2 problems

1. sending a message from one host to another. you would want to use one of the protocols to do this TCP / IP / Telnet etc.

2. The process should pick up the message. this would be donw by listening to a socket.

wish i could give you more details, but i guess this will help you in the approach
