What is the fastest method to get at a linux CLI in windows? (See this earlier question on StackOverflow.)
Basically my goal is to use a batch file in windows to control various things on my ubuntu mediacenter/server. Music being the main thing of course but it seems fairly invaluable, I can imagine a lot of people wanting this.
I am currently using ssh with plink, i can login send a command all in one line, perfect. Almost... there is a wait time of something like 5~6seconds between me hitting the command and it happening.
I assume that this is the authentication with ssh screwing me over since I have to login and authenticate before each command which is slow.
- Somehow run the ssh CLIENT as a service on the windows box then when I want to send a command send it through the already open session. This seems doable. I'd prefer a tool to programming my own ssh app though to achieve this...
- I did something wrong and logging in shouldn't take so long
- plink is slow
- batch files are slow (i can't imagine)
