I am also confused about your question as a previous sender. Do you have 
cygwin installed on your Windows machines?
You can use shell to ssh to a remote location like in Unix. The next 
thing that comes to my mind is PUTTY but I am not really sure
if you already dismissed it as inadequate. WinSCP is secure copy client 
(sftp) which is in Unix world part of ssh but as I said earlier if you 
have cygwin you can pretend that you are in the Unix environment. 
OpenSSH is a cygwin package!
