It would work. There are no strong requirements for the execution
server. Thanks for the information of rpc.rexd.

BTW, the method like dodes is limited by the underlying network file
system. There is a delay to notify some kinds of file operations on
NFS. The file creations with the NFS client side are not seen from
the server side so immediately, for example. I'm unsure that it is
an essential restriction of NFS or a simply implementation issue of
the current NFS on Linux. It might be not problem with the interactive
use of such method but anway sometimes problematic in batch-like use.
