I am currently making a web interface which will have Click Buttons
that should invoke a shell script on a remote machine

I have to execute these shell scripts on many such machines and monitor

them, and it is very time-consuming. So i look forward to make a web
interface that will control these scripts.

According to you:

1. Which is the best language to prepare web interface ?
2. How to make connectivity and authentication (user/passwd) from web
interface to remote Unix/linux machine ?
3. How to start shell/perl script and check if it is completed or not ?

4. Is it possible to invoke Remote Desktop through VNC service by the
click of a button?

I would appreciate if you can provide any answers to these questions.
Thanks in advance.
