Any recommendations for starting and controlling the 'CALL "*rpsrvr",15000' on the remote system?

On Windows you could install it as a service then the user can use the standard windows service manager to control it.
For Linux/Unix you could use INITTAB to start the process.

BTW: In general if you just want to run a program on the remote machine you could use Apache or *EZWEB and the CALL "[http:...]" capabilities of PxPlus.  This will provide similar functionality while also allowing you to have Web access to the remote machine.
