When using the cf ssh <application>, it fails and gives the error message shown below:
Error: SSH session allocation failed: ssh: rejected: administratively prohibited
(SSH is not supported on windows cells)
This is a known limitation with Windows. Currently, Diego for Windows does not support access to applications via Secure Shell (SSH).
An alternative is to use Remote Desktop to connect to a computer running Windows from another computer that's connected to the same network and is also running Windows. Remote Desktop is not a function of PCF, but a core functionality of Microsoft Windows. As such, you would configure Remote Desktop access in accordance with your company's procedure and policies for remote access of the Windows server.
