in thread How to connect to unix machine from Windows and execute command

AFAIK you will need to either find a suitable "server" software package to install on each Windows host,

Why would he need to install server packages on windows, when he want to connect from Windows to *nix?

if someone finds the password or keys they will have the same access as you do.

Que? Is there any solution -- to any security problem -- that remains secure if you give away the passwords and keys?

    Read the question a little too fast, sorry.

    The general security issue of passwords and keys being available to a script still holds though. Between Windows hosts there are systems already in place to facilitate authorization/authentication that's usually secure enough.

    Not so if you hack together a script for doing stuff cross-platform, without a firm understanding of the risks. I'm sure you're well aware but everyone else isn't.
