Where is your Cygwin SSH documentation?

FAQCygwin's documentation is the official information you should follow for Cygwin SSH installation instructions.

See my explanation for removing the documentation from my site.

Join my ssh list for further SSH related discussion.

See for Cygwin + SSH Docs

CygwinI no longer host any documentation for setting up Cygwin or SSH on Windows.

I didn't have the time or the need to keep the documentation up to date.

Additionally, too many people were reading my site and then, instead of using the ssh list I set up (that is no longer active), people were asking questions about my documentation on the Cygwin mailing lists. As you can imagine, this didn't make the Cygwin maintainers happy.

Besides, when I originally set up this site, SSH+Windows documentation was sparse at best. So, I journaled my experiences. Now, with Cygwin (and it's been this way for years), it just works. Install it and go.

If you have any questions about ssh, join and use my ssh mailing list.

What the heck is OpenBSD? Is it like Linux?

FAQOpenBSD is a FREE/secure operating system that is based on Berkeley's implementation of Unix. It's not Linux, but it is like Linux in that it is based on Unix. It falls into the category of "*nix." But, it is very different from Linux. Linux has become a very easy to install, somewhat easy to configure and use Unix-like operating system. It works with a vast array of hardware and software and has world-wide support. OpenBSD focuses on security and stability. If you are interested in using OpenBSD, read man pages, search Google and ask questions OpenBSD mailing lists.

Are you a hardware guy or a software guy?

FAQI'll answer this question by asking YOU a question, again:

Why limit me? I do what it takes to get the job done. Get my hands dirty working inside a PC, server, LAN Closet, ceiling, rooftop, ... to fix a problem, I do. I do everything from set up PCs from spare parts, to crimping cables, to writing programs, to configuring routers, firewalls and server software (oh my!).

Are you a Windows/Wintel guy or a Unix guy?

FAQI'll answer by asking YOU a question: Why limit me?
I always try to use the "Best Tool For The Job".
As many Windows people are willing to admit, there are times where *nix (meaning all Unix and Unix-like Operating Systems) is the "Best Tool".

Unfortunately, though, Unix people are often against admitting that sometimes Windows IS the "Best Tool"
So... the short answer is BOTH.

What is "-ME"?

FAQMy initials. Clear and simple. I started signing my emails as "-ME" and you'd be surprised how many people think I'm being "cute" like, "Hi, it's me". No. Just easy to type.

What is FAQ?

FAQFrequently Asked Questions. It's an "Internet Term" meaning: I hear this question all too often and hope that people will stop asking if I answer it on my web page.
