can you be a bit more specific? and why have you tagged this question as internet-explorer-8? – Baarn Feb 3 '12 at 13:30

You probably want to install PuTTY, an SSH implementation for Windows. It includes plink, a command-line SSH tool, as well as the GUI version.

That should sort you out.

Windows simply does not have SSH functionality built in. You will have to pull in some external dependancies to do this. – Journeyman Geek Feb 3 '12 at 7:56

If you need a command line utility you could use cygwin, its an intergration of some core linux tools and libraries for windows. There are plenty of guides how to use and install ssh with cygwin so I won't write another one here.

Next possibilty would be to just use a LiveCD of your favourite Linux ditribution or install a second OS on you computer, if you do not rely on any other windows tools for the task you are trying to do.
