No. You can't run console-based Windows programs over ssh. edit needs
a real console window to operate and ssh is not that.
As is mentioned later in this thread, use cygwin-aware editors if you
want the best results.
Well, the truth is I used "edit.com" as simple a example only. In fact
I need to use some other DOS based software with advanced UI.
I'll need to think about writing my own ssh server.
