This would help you run something on the server if your code is running on the server, which I don't think is the case here. The solution about telnet or ssh libraries is more appropriate. Although technically, you could potentially use Runtime.exec() to execute a local ssh process which connects to the remove machine and executes a command. The solution using an ssh library would be far more portable and more efficient.
