    Question about controlling linux box through a mobile phone


    Hi everyone, I am dealing with Redhat Linux since Redhat 5.0 and recently with Debian which I find much interesting. I hold a Linux server and because of possible problems happening there I thought to make an interactive system through Linux and a mobile phone. My thought is to establish an interactive communication, for example when a service is stopped a sms notify me and I reply with a new sms to Linux server to fix the problem, for example a sms could be for restarting the apache, /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart and so on.
    I have made some simple scripts through cron but its role is only for information, its one way communication and my goal is to send bash commands through sms.
    Has anyone make any effort to do something like this?
    Any help, info sites could be welcomed.

    Thanks.
