Uh-oh; not so clear. There's quite a difference between rdp and
a file-server connection. But ok...

To do *what* for you? Control a remote desktop? Start a
remote folder in explorer?

[... snip stuff about a log file ...]

Have I missed something? What does this have to do with the
previous stuff about remote desktops and connecting to

I'm sorry, asterix09, I'm sure we're willing to help you,
but you seem to be confusing several things at once here.

I'm going to have a stab at what you're talking about and
let's see how close I get:

* You have several log files on some remote machines

* The log files contain lines of text of the form: aaa=bbb

* You want to perform some kind of comparison of this content, building
  up a database of some underspecified structure.
