How to create the folder in remote machine?

I tried using the file.mkdir() to create folder in remote machine of same LAN network, I could created if the parent folder is shared folder.

But I could not created in other network.

My requirement is,
1. To create folder in same LAN network which is not a shared folder.
2. To create folder in remote machine in another LAN network. Remote machine may be linux and windows.

How to achieve this?

If the remote disk drive is shared your program sees it essentially as a local drive that is why File.mkdir works.

If the drive is not shared then the mkdir command needs to be executed on a remote system that has the drive mounted (locally or shared).

In unix one way to do it is to use the ssh command probably with a certificate with no password if that meets your security requirements.

If you need to be machine independent you will need some sort of remote procedure call, perhaps a roll your own, which is not hard for something this simple but does require a program to be running on each remote system. I'm not sure of a remote procedure mechanism that works on both Windows and Linux.
