Accessing Windows console remotely from Linux

Author: JT Smith

Have you ever needed to execute a command or to connect to an interactive text console on a remote Windows station?

Probably several times, and usually, you had to log in using either VNC or RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol - Microsoft Terminal Services). If you're used to SSH, you may wonder why the overhead of a complete desktop is needed just to start a few text commands.
Of course, there are free and commercial SSH servers for Windows, but one problem with them is that they have to be installed separately. Which may be too much work for a one-off task now and then. Are there any other methods of accessing a remote Window text console from your Linux station?
