If you'd posted this description of of the situation about 2 days
ago, you'd have had a *much* better chance of getting a useful
answer. I don't think I'd have guessed in a million years that
this was what you were trying to do!

In short, there's no command you can type *inside Python*,
*on a remote box* which will cause Putty or Windows or
anything on your local PC to open another Window. I'd
be seriously worried if there were!
