Just use puTTY.  You can download it and run it without any installation.

If you're that locked down that you can't do any of those things, I'd
suggest you get a laptop or other way to manage this remotely.  What good
is a text editor if you can't restart daemons or HUP them?  Nokia cell
phones have an SSH client available.
