Look at RUNRMTCMD on the AS/400, and look at CWBRXD on the PC.  If you look
at the client access help and search for REXEC, you'll find out about
setting up your PC to accept remote commands.  I got there by right-clicking
on the AS/400 icon in the taskbar.

Basically, CWBRXD starts a link between the PC and the 400.  CWBRXDSD shuts
that link off.  You configure a user ID/password in Client Access
Properties, then you can RUNRMTCMD from the 400.

Also, scan the Midrange archives on this topic.  There may be more details
there as well as alternatives.
