    Ok.. So I'm trying to get a game to open and connect to an online game from a web command. It seems that it is impossible to tell a game to open and connect to an online game directly to open from a website, but I've been thinking of ways to get around that. This leads to my question.

    Is it possible to make an application that waits for a file to download to the folder before the open application command is activated? I'm hoping this will give me away to use shell script commands from a website. This is how it might work:

    1) I activate the application that waits for the key.
    2) The key is then downloaded into the folder.
    3) The application then opens and connects to a game.

    Maybe this is a bit complicated, but how else can I run shell script from a website? If anyone else has an idea I will be very happy. Thanks for at least reading my rambling ;) .

    You're trying to send commands remotely by remotely commanding an application to download a file? What?
