I have a Linux server (call it server-L) which i cannot directly ssh to it. In order to ssh it i should connect to a windows server(call it server-W) and then make ssh connection from it to my Linux server.
I want to know are there any methods so that I can make network connection or something like a tunnle over RDP of server-W and directly SSH to server-L on my computer? My main reason for this is avoid stuck in windows GUI! enter image description here
in order to be specific my constraint are:

  1. I have a limited user on server-W for RDP
  2. I have private key/root access to server-L
  3. My desktop machine got windows OS
  • You want to tunnel SSH over your RDP session to Win Server? – gravyface Aug 28 '14 at 14:15
  • It's too bad you don't have remote access to "Server-L": tunneling RDP over SSH is trivial. – gravyface Aug 28 '14 at 14:17
  • Why not install an SSH server on the Windows machine and tunnel with that? There are lots of SSH Servers for Windows available. – Moshe Katz Aug 28 '14 at 21:41

If Server-W has RDS services you could utilise "RemoteApp" to launch applications directly - as for direct tunneling over RDP not sure that's possible.

  • This should work, if you're talking about publishing PuTTY as a RemoteApp on Win Server. Not sure all the features in PuTTY/SSH would work, but a basic shell should be doable. – gravyface Aug 28 '14 at 14:17
  • Indeed I was :).. Yeah that's true obviously wouldn't be able to utilise the port forwarding etc. unless of course you published those apps too – Aceth Aug 29 '14 at 16:25
