I’m using Windows 7, and I’m trying to do local editing of remote files. I’ve tried remote-edit, remote-ftp, sftp-deployment, and atom-commander.
The issue that I’m running into relates to authentication. In order to connect to the remote machine, I have to use a special patched version of PuTTY that supports the kerberized authentication required. I also have patched versions of scp and sftp.
The problem is that none of the remote editing packages seem to allow me the option to specify the binary that should be used to make the remote connection. Is there a package available that would allow me to do that?
Alternatively, could adding my patched PuTTY directory to my system PATH make a difference? The reason I’m asking rather than just trying it is that I don’t have admin privileges, and the IT department here has no idea what an environment variable is. It would be a painful, multi-week process for me just to get one directory added to it.
Thanks for any guidance anyone could give me here.
