I'm not quite sure what you mean by the WS2k8 server with RDC in the middle. Your connection needs to be ssh all the way to have any chance of success, including ssh into one box and then ssh from there on to another box.

If there is a legitimate policy reason why you can't have a direct route, then working around it could get you fired. If there's no policy reason, but they won't do it anyway, write a memo to your boss explaining why you need this to do your job and asking him to deal with the appropriate manager to get this resolved.
Adding a route between two known addresses to the Windows server shouldn't be a big deal, unless, of course, it violates some policy.
