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Additionally, too many people were reading my site and then, instead of using the ssh list I set up (that is no longer active), people were asking questions about my documentation on the Cygwin mailing lists.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.
