Executing a Single UNIX Command

Using the UNIX Command window, you can send a single command to the selected
client computers. The command is executed using the bash shell.

To execute a single UNIX command:


Select a computer list in the Remote Desktop window.


Select one or more computers in the selected computer list.


Choose Manage > Send UNIX Command.


Type or paste the command.

If your command is a multi-line script, enter each command on its own line. If you want
to break up a single-line command for better readability, use a backslash (\) to begin a
new line.


Set the permissions used to execute the command.

You can choose the currently logged-in user, or choose the name of another user on
the client computers.


Click Send.
