      Thanks for your response. Yes, I have tried Remote Desktop Connection
      before and it works but unfortuantely that is not scriptable. I need
      to execute the Win32::GuiTest scripts remotely in an automated way.

      Looking at the archives here I did see a very old email from someone
      who had success over SSH but there were not much details. If anyone
      has tried this and got it to work, please let me know.
