Re: SSH not working


only is you want server as well Are you using nt/2k (if so $CYGWIN should be
set to something like 'binmode ntsec tty') or win9x/me (if so $CYGWIN should
be set to 'binmode tty' or another variant).

Does /home/Administrator (dir)  exist? does /home/administrator/.ssh (dir)

Try deleting the dir /home/administrator/.ssh and running 'ssh
user@hostname' again, dont worrk all of your keys and hosts files will be
re-installed when you connect to the host(s) again.

If none if this works im bafff'd...
