Need to SSH into a Windows Server to have access to a command window/shell window

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I used to use PuTTY to log into a Linux box via SSH.  It would prompt me to a username/password and I would have access to it's backend command line.  

The application that was installed in Linux is now on a Windows server.  I still need to know how to run those commands.  I tried using PuTTY but it just says:
"Network error: Connection refused"

Is there a way to "PuTTY" into Windows and run my same commands?
