Are you trying to access a MongoDB instance running in your local area network, or is it in another network? The IP you gave is a private IP, and if it's in another network you'll need the public IP. If it's in your LAN and you're still not able to connect, check out this link on allowing remote access for MongoDB. MongoDB doesn't allow remote access by default. It could also be firewall issues

I have a requirement where I need to kill one process on remote windows machine. Following command just works fine if i have to kill process on local machine

os.system('taskkill /f /im processName.exe')

However I am not able to figure out how to execute this command on remote windows machine. So is there any way I can execute command from windows machine on remote windows machine ?
Note: my local machine is also windows (machine from where i have to execute command)
