Qt Remote Objects help

  • I'm hoping this is the right library.

    What I'm trying to do is create a c++ object of a remote machine (like when you ssh into a machine).

    I'm hoping I can run QNetworkInterface on this remote object and other shell commands from the main program on the local machine.

    Speed is the key as well as full access to the machine.

    Is remote object the right library?

    Or make a seperate Qt application just for that machine and be able to call functions of that Qt application for that machine remotely

    @Mike-Harris What OS is running on the remote machine?
    Usually one would use SSH for UNIX/Linux for that. Implementing your own solution is a lot of work and making it secure is even harder.
    See for SSH with Qt.
