How to create platform independent ssh connection?

Hi, newbie SOAtest user here.
We are in the process of evaluating SOAtest, and one of the requirements is that our test suites can run both on Windows and Linux. Since both also need to ssh into a Linux box to run commands, the external tool seems out of the question, because it will require PLink on Windows and ssh on Linux. When I read the forums it has been suggested to use the FTP client which can do SSH/SFTP commands. But I can't find how to run a command other than the standard SFTP commands pwd, ls, cd, mkdir, rmdir, get, put. Nothing to run a local Linux command. Has anyone found a solution for this type of scenario?
