[RC5] Ensuring the client is running...

If you don't have telnet, SSH, or any other remote administration method,
how do you propose to see if the client is running? Dnetc doesn't listen for
connections... It's a *client*, not a server.

Subject: [RC5] Ensuring the client is running...


Is there any way to (from a remote machine) ensure that the client 
is still running? Let us (for the sake of discussion) assume that 
Telnet or SSH or any other login method is not available.

I'm looking to automate my "client is down" reporting since one of 
my machines seems to be shutting the client down for no apparent 
reason. If I can get a "it died" message, then I can start looking at 
logs and trying to work out what happened.

Any advice would be welcome!

TIA

Carl
