Yes, I understand that. I phrased my problem badly. The thing is, in order to allow my Kindle to connect to an enterprise network, I have to run certain commands. This is on the website I mentioned earlier:
Connect to Kindle’s shell via usbnetwork like this. On your Kindle, go Home, press Del, type “;debugOn” and Enter. Type “~usbNetwork” in the same way. Your Kindle is now switched from mass storage to USB network mode. Connect it to the computer via cable.
On your computer, run

modprobe usbnet
modprobe cdc_ether
ifconfig usb0
ssh root@

You can also store ssh keys into /etc/base-us/usbnet/etc/authorized_keys, but if connecting without password is OK, skip it.
This is clearly intended to be input into a Linux terminal, no? My question is, is there any way to execute these commands from windows? Without an OS emulator?
