What is the safest way to invoke a script remotely on a Windows host
synchronously, and retrieving a return code to the caller at program
termination?

Because the target system is in a no man's land, I do not want to open up
RPC port, and God forbid with have to involve the abomination that is DCOM.
I want something extremely simple and special purpose, with good
authentication features on the program server.

What are my options?    Commercial software is okay.
