Situation currently:

To access a remote Linux VPS we need to load up a VPN connection, login to Microsoft Remote Desktop and then connect to the VPS using SSH inside the remote desktop environment.

[local] -> [vpn] -> [mrd] -> [ssh (putty)] -> [vps]

Would it be in any way possible to use SSH as such:

[local] -> [vpn+ssh (terminal)] -> [vps]

Currently, we're having trouble getting proper code transfers working with the remote desktop system, and instead would like to use git push our code changes directly from local setups to the remote VPS which sits behind a VPN connection.


It's possible.
You may ask the network administrator that if the SSH service of the VPS could be opened to the VPN user. If it's allowed, they can set this up.
