controlling client from client

This might be a shot in the dark and/or a weird question.

 

Is there any way a client can execute a script or make a change on a different client?

 

Scenario:

 

I have a robot that runs an ontimer script all day looking for value in a flag field that is set by other clients. If f_import = 1 then it imports via ODBC and yada yada. The reason its doing this is so that we don't need drivers on every client.

 

So, instead of running the script all day looking for that flag field, I was wondering if users in the same office and network could execute the script on the robot without having to keep the ontimer script running every 2 minutes looking for that flag field. Can they perhaps execute applescript?

 

 

Its worth a try I figure.

 

Thanks!
