I can relate to this one...
I was tasked to port this UNIX application from CORBA to Axis2C and I was 
handed out a (WHAT?!) Window$ XP laptop... 

I dual booted the Laptop (to have a fall back resource) and installed 
Kubuntu.  I slapped a virtual XP on top to do the windoze thing (Outlook ans 
stuff like that).  Then I created a Samba share that was pointed to an sshfs 
mounted to the UNIX machine so I could browse the source directly from the 
XP machine without scaring anyone. 

For "work at home" days, I would fire the virtual M$, connect to the VPN and 
login into the UNIX machine.  Then I would set a reverse tunnel to my server 
and then a reverse tunnel to the laptop. 

I had scripts that detected the environment and mounted the filesystem 
Pretty geeky...   :)

PS: Gave up SHR.
Now I am OpenWRT(ing)
Hope it works...
