I know th VNC application, but I think that this is not the right solution
for my problem. With VNC you are able to forward display, mouse and keyboard
to another machine. Thereby it is possible to connect from UNIX to Windows and
start the application via mouseclick. In my case it is necessarry to start
the windows-application through a Unix-Application (Perl-Script, Shell-Script,
etc).I don't think, that there is a solution for that problem using VNC.  Is
it ? Neverteless, thanks for your efforts !
