    Hi All!

    I am not asking for code, just need a starting idea to develop some server/client scripts (perl/shell) that can communicate with each other automatically and sometimes manually if required.

    My main problem is how to implement the communication between the client and server that they could send and receive information from each other using a secure way.

    Server side
    -collect information remotely about processes, configuration files
    -can push client to update configuration files

    Client side
    -monitor processes and alert server process if something is not running
    -monitor configuration files and alert server ....
    -report back to the server regularly
    -can be pushed bz server side to update configuration file or kill process
    - ...

    thx kEndE

    You can setup servers to communicate with each other over ssh using public key authentication (secure and does not require password to log in). Then create scripts that would use ssh. Also, check out "expect" for automating the processes.
