    For this to be possible, the Client PC is going to need to have some kind of client software on it listening for connections and commands. This is also needed to gather information about the drive.

    How are you planning to gain access to the Clients PC otherwise?

    I don't want to install something on the client computer. because the PC can easy be a ThinClient, so it does not help with an agent.
    some other workaround , if you think it is possible in any other language it could also be a soloution for me .
