    I am using the terminal right now and i want to know if i tunnel into another mac, could i run a script or programing to have that computer run a windows pc thru CMD.

    becuase i am too lazy to go to my office from apt to turn my windows computer and mac off in my office.

    In general of you ssh (or telnet or rlogin) into another computer you can do anything you could do at that computer's command prompt. I do something like what you descrie all the time.

    Details however depend on your exact setup, fire walls and so on and k no one here knows about any of that.
