I use a command line twitter client, TTYtter, thru PuTTY on a linux box. Lots of tweets contain links, so there's a
/url command to open urls, which searches for URLs a in a given tweet and runs a command on them locally to launch a browser with that url (e.g.
open %U on mac or
firefox -new-tab %U on Linux).
My question: Is there a command I can run from within a PuTTY session to open a URL in my local (windows 7) machine? To put it another way: is there a way, from within an SSH session in PuTTY, to reach out of the SSH session to the local machine?
EDIT: Another approach: Is there any combination of PuTTY and a windows ssh daemon or cygwin or something that I could use to ssh to my local box (loopback) and trigger a tab to open? I use tmux for multiplexing so my goal is to have all my stuff in one putty window.
