I'm looking for any software/tools that will allow my computer to 'sense' that a particular PC on my home network has just booted and that will then trigger a particular script/app to run (in my case, copy the latest daily backup over to that machine).

Anybody know of something that does this?

Thanks,
Jeff

You could try pinging the machine every minute or so... if you need better reliability or finer granularity, perhaps the booted machine should report to your box that "hey, I'm alive and ready for whatever you send my way."

Thanks f0dder. I figured I'd have to write the app myself, but it can't hurt to check if there's something off the shelf first...  smiley
