This paper addresses issues that arise when a peer group, distributed
across several time zones, uses the Internet to configure and execute
distributed desktop-based applications and tasks.
The paper provides solutions and Tcl/Tk implementations to support
peer-to-peer communication/control of distributed
software and computing resources over the Internet;
recording and playback of interactive execution of Tcl/Tk applications
and collaborative sessions.
The summary of 540 Internet-based experiments,
each relying on
RecordTaker and PlaybackMaker to
record, playback, and execute ReubenDesktop configurations
from local, cross-state, and cross-country servers,
demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed concepts
