If you could connect your remote host via Tramp, then you could use
eshell. Both cooperate.

Let's say you are able open "/plink:address@hidden:", getting an dired
buffer. Then you can also apply "M-x eshell". In the eshell buffer, you
could do "cd /plink:address@hidden:". Now you can apply commands on the
remote host.

I haven't tried it on Windows, but it shall work this way, starting with
Emacs 23.

Best regards, Michael.
