Send batch file over LAN connection

Hello everyone, I would like to send a batch file to all the computers in my house and have it run itself.

Do you guys know of a way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

I'd assume have every computer in your house have another batch file set up to automatically access and run the other batch file.
If you were able to push a batch file to other computers, then that would be a security risk that hackers could take advantage of.

This sounds too much like an attempt at malware...

Possibly use a flash drive to deliver the Batch file to each PC.

the ONLY thing im using this for is to update the anti virus software (ironic lol) on each computer (i currently have 6 up and running 24/7) and it would be really nice to be able to just send out a batch file to start the process. If i used a flash drive to deliver it, i would have to do it every time on each comp and that would defeat the purpose.

You dont need a killall command to do this.. This can be done by scheduling the update process in the preferences section in each computer...

But why can't you?,
Surely it wont take that long to sit at each PC, set it to update at such a time, and move on to the next.

I would like to know what anti-virus you are running that doesn't have an auto updater. I would consider looking at alternatives
