I've recently started a new job (Linux Admin). I am now having to use a Windows 7 Desktop and Laptop.
Having been able to avoid Windows entirely in the workplace for some years now, I am finding the switch a little difficult to say the least... I am used to using a Linux desktop or MAC.
At the new place, I am having to RDP from my Windows 7 desktop to a secured Windows VM in our DC. From there I can use PUTTY to ssh onto our Linux/VM's.
Jumping from one Windows machine to a Windows VM then using PUTTY.. no fun.
I am used to ssh'ing from my MAC or desktop inside a secire network.
I am toying with a few ideas. But if anyone has any suggestions on how to make my life easier using my Windows setup, I'd like to hear them.
I'm thinking of the below.
Portable Ubuntu installed on the Windows Desktop and Windows VM. With netcat running on the VM acting as a middle man forwarding my ssh sessions onto the relevant Linux/UNIX system. So in theory I could use Portable Ubuntu to ssh directly from my Windows 7 desktop into our servers.
