Before Cygwin, we had standardized on Waterloo Unix to support EBS on Windows, but that was a *long* time ago, closer to Unix 0 time than today. I doubt it is still even for sale.


I *suspect* you may get some traction with your admins for the things you can get from the MS store.


Possibly “Superputty” might be useful on the lighter weight side, which allows windows-style windows of unix terminal sessions as well as software.


There are plenty of choices, as the thread so far has recounted, but I think your main issue is getting something “good enough” that the folks who administer windows security  can and will make a part of the standard distribution at your shop.


Are you primarily trying to provide UNIX capabilities on your workstation, or are you trying to access UNIX hosts from your workstation?

Is there any Software that doesn't need install like putty available to provide Unix Shell capabilities. I used cygwin earlier and even setup wirh rlwrap as been demo by Tanel and using Terminator to setup all scripts for Database monitoring. Now company put new security updates that stop the Cygwin access and so looking for some alternative as the laptop has no Admin privilege to install any software.


Even software that needs to pay for the license is fine or any other way to make the Putty interface better like  cygwin or unix emulator so that I can do setup on one of the database server with all monitoring setup and can connect using tnsnames.ora for all server. Currently simple putty is not that friendly.


Thanks for sharing the details
