bot another machine

good morning, soon someone helps me with a question I have.

I want to run a bot on another pc not locally on my machine.

Should I install a gateway on the other pc or do I install it on my machine with the information from the other pc?

Thank you very much for clarifying this question.Presentación1.jpg

OK, I think the confusion is on the use of the term bot,  The screenshot in your post is a Power Automate flow, not a bot.  Flows also run in the cloud although they can access resources on your desktop.  The trigger appears to be for When a file is created in the local file system.  To have it work against a different machine you need to open the flow while logged in to that machine and change the trigger to point to that machine.

Bots all run in the cloud.  The only thing running on your PC is the web browser that talks to the bot.  So the only way to really run a bot on another machine would be to use a Power Automate desktop flow to access Teams or the Web site where the bot runs on that other machine and interact with the bot.

 

Could you explain a bit more what you are trying to accomplish?  I might be able to provide a better answer.
