I am CCing our support team as well. We use a Windows VM that contains the
relevant software that we either remote desktop into (if already on NCEP
network) or VPN into it. However, I share the two concerns you have.
Certainly from NCOs perspective, I do not think it would be difficult to
set up a separate Windows VM for you to manage as you see fit. So, my
vote would be to have separate VMs.
