Sorry for the delay.
It seems like you have several options to invoke the program on the 530 machine:
1. RUNRMTCMD which can be setup to include userqpassword or not.
2. FTP and QUOTE RCMD CALL LIB/PROGRAM
3. SNDNETMSG and setup a message monitoring program
4. Write to a remote file using DDM and setup a trigger program
and some other, more esoteric ways.

either way, you need a "wrapper" around your program, such as a custom CL or a 
REXX script
that will run it under a job description containing the user profile and 
library list.
