 running external programs from ASP (on local or remote machines)

 Hi all,
I need to run external programs (e.g. executables, batch files, scripts) from
within an
ASP script (in javascript or VBScript) running on a Windows server. The external

programs may reside in some directory in the local Windows machine or some
remote machine operating under Windows or UNIX. What's the simplest and
fastest (in terms of runtime performance) way for doing this? i.e. connect to
the
other machine if needed, input data to the external program, run the program and

and fetch back the results to the ASP script? Are there any already available
javascript or vbscript functions that can do this?

Any pointers will be appreciated. I've looked around a bit in books and online
resources, but have not found a clear answer to what appears to be a simple
question.

Thanks, George

PS - Please cc any replies to my email address.
