from Win XP, remotely execute a command on Linux using ssh
 
I have:
a linux system with full ssh access to it (including root)
a Windows XP PC

From the XP, I often use Putty to ssh into this linux system.

Now I would like to:

a. Execute just these test scripts (and nothing else):
/home/me/scripts/full_batch
/home/me/scripts/half_batch

b. On the linux system

c. From XP

d. Without using Putty (a full ssh session)



In other words, can I do something this:
ssh me@myLinuxSystem '/home/me/scripts/full_batch'
but from the command line in XP?

Then I can automate this and let it run when certain events occur on XP.

Plink (PuTTY Link).

This is a command line version of PuTTY.
Similiar to OpenSSH ... the last option is a command to be executed.

Usage: plink [options] [user@]host [command]
