This question already has an answer here:

How do I connect from a Win7 PC via local LAN to a Ubuntu Dektop 16.04.01 PC's command line window using only software that comes on the original installation DVDs?

Edit: Did a Full rephrase of the question, because answers so far showed that the question was not understood as I intended. This is not about anything I can download from the web an put to these machines somehow, e.g. SSH or anything. There are enough other answers that address those as linked in the first answer. So its not a duplicate. Its about can I achieve it with what is on the original DVD only. As its an ubuntu forum, answers may skip the windows side, of course.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • @Fabby might be a problem given their other question: askubuntu.com/questions/872193/…. But if OP has a different PC connected to the internet, they could use askubuntu.com/q/974/158442 – muru Jan 15 '17 at 16:07

  • @muru good point, but related only by chance. I have seen the link about to keryx before and checked it out. As it is written in that post, development is ceased and for a newbie there is not much left to get started with it. – CatMan Jan 15 '17 at 16:26
  • @CatMan there are number of other answers there that you can try. Never stop at the top answer – muru Jan 15 '17 at 16:26

    @CatMan if you won't install SSH, then the answer is essentially no. – muru Jan 15 '17 at 17:42

Follow this duplicate to install a secure shell on the Ubuntu machine and install an ssh client on the Windows machine. (Windows solutions are off-topic here on Ask Ubuntu but not over here)

  • Using ssh according to the post is not standard ubuntu desktop. I tried to install it as described in that lined post and it did not find the packet. Isn't there another way? – CatMan Jan 15 '17 at 16:30
  • No, you need Internet access to install from online repositories. You can however google the package from another PC) , download it to removable media and install it on the offline machine. – user589808 Jan 15 '17 at 18:08
  • Nope. Pick up the machine, go to a friend who has an Internet connection and install it there or download the entire Ubuntu mirror for your release and dump it on a hard disk and install from there. – Fabby Jan 15 '17 at 21:12
