Is there any straight way that one can start a Windows console program from a Mac?
Preferrably I would like to something with ssh, but as I am in a private network without Internet, I am not so afraid of security.
I have used VNC, but my users deem it as too slow/uncomfortable.

Remote Desktop has far better performance (although it is still GUI remote access). I use it to access a Windows machine for Visual Studio development, and, although not quite like sitting directly at it, it's quite usable. – Daniel Beck Nov 1 '10 at 11:46
@weismat You should accept the answer if it worked for you. – CajunLuke Aug 16 '11 at 19:48

Powershell for windows has SSH server capabilities for remote management. Look here for an article by Microsoft about it. You can get Powershell here. There are also several walkthroughs online on how to set up the server.
