On the server side : ( @ip for example )

Consider this simple script named script.sh : ( /home/user/script.sh )

echo good

Let's create new service named script.sh under xinetd to run script above : ( /etc/xinetd.d/script.sh )

service script.sh                       # Name from /etc/services;
        server = /home/user/script.sh          # The service executable
        server_args = ANY_ARGS_HERE        # Any arguments; omit if none
        user = USER                        # Run the service as this user
        socket_type = TYPE                 # stream, dgram, raw, or seqpacket
        wait = nO                      # yes = single-threaded, no = multithreaded

Then, let's add this service to /etc/services :

script.sh    3376/tcp 

Finally restarting xinetd : service xinetd restart

On the client side :

Now I want to run script.sh remotely using script.sh service located on the server . it might be something like this : script.sh 3376/tcp

Here comes my question :

what are the configurations to do on the client side in order to execute this script on the server and get results on the client ?


You connect to the port that you've defined in /etc/services and /etc/xinetd. So either of these commands could work for you, assuming is the remote server hosting the script.sh service:

nc 3376
telnet 3376

If you're running a firewall on the remote server you will need to punch a hole through it for incoming sessions on 3376/tcp. Without knowing which firewall you're running it's not sensible to offer a solution for that. (If you want to update your Question then I or someone else can offer a fix.)
