Linux – Accessing a remote Windows “Git Bash” prompt from a Linux machine


"Git Bash" is a program that comes with Git for Windows. In order to get to a Git Bash prompt on a remote Windows machine from a linux machine, my usual process is to use remmina to open an RDP connection, then to open a new Git Bash window.

Is there a way to log in using my bash shell instead of having to muck with GUI stuff?

  • As far as I know, PowerShell lets you use SSH to log in to the Windows box remotely to access the command line shell...

    EDIT I found this PowerShell server (free for personal usage with 1 connection)
