Say I got a internet page sat up, I got a list of 1000 computers that I have to send a command to.

I have this all sat up and ready on a page, but the problem is, I manually have to click the button next to the computer name 1000 times to do this... SO Is there a way to automate this?

Like open up all of the "buttons" I have created on the page with say a script, so it runs in say 1000 tabs in a second, so i don't have to manually click these tabs 1000 times?


I know it's way to little information, I just need to know if it's do-able and a easy job.

If its an webpage you could create an application that sends a HTTP request (GET,POST, PUT,DELETE,w/e methods the server uses) that will repeat for 1000 times. More info read HTTP/1.1

Not knowing what the button does and how it needs to run it is hard to say. If you were sending commands to 1000 computers from a webpage, you would have to assume that these computers are linked to web server somehow or that it is part of the same local network. Otherwise I don't see how your page will actively interact with any exterior terminal. One method I would use in something like this though, would be to write something in perl or php with a loop to go through an array of targets and then just execute the program via a web interface.

Or, if you're able to add a program to these computers, it's fairly straight forward to make a Python script that will check a server and see if a specific command has been issued, and then act on that command. If you don't have a server, you could always just use email to communicate to your programs.
