I wanted to create a small automated script using Ruby. I just need to
know what classes do I use to create this script.
When running my script I would like for itto do the following

1. Automatically Log user onto another machine via RDP

2. While logged in the session I want the script to automatically create
an iteration of files and folders, rename, change attribute of
files\folders.

3. Log off then log back on another user via RDP again, repeating step
2.

I would just like to know what classes do I use to create this script? I
know the File class could be one.

Thanks

RDP is a proprietary Microsoft protocol used for Terminal Services
(i.e. remote GUI). I don't know much about it, but I'm pretty sure
this does not allow you to automate the execution of scripts on remote
machines. You may want to look into Net::SSH.
