Connecting to UNIX from Windows without using putty


Is there any command which we can try connecting unix from windows without using any third party tool.

Thanks in advance

Yes, if FTP or telnet is enabled on unix server, you can connect using ftp or telnet from windows without installing anything.

Be advise tho, ftp and telnet travel thru network unencrypted, unlike ssh or sftp.
On most recent unix machines, telnet and ftp are disabled per default.

Both mechanisms by default use clear text (over the wire) for passwords. Just letting you know.

How do i connect when i want to do automation which involves connecting from windows(win 7) to unix?

I believe FTP will not let us run any UNIX commands for our automation

Stock Windows comes with absolutely no effective communication tools by design. It's telnet or nothing.
