there. I'm an SSH/Cygwin noob, but want to use ssh via Cygwin to connect to a Windows 7 machine under a domain from ConnectBot (android).
I went through the ssh-host-config as described here: http://www.scottmurphy.info/open-ssh-server-sshd-cygwin-windows
When I connect to the server it says "Attempting 'password' authentication". I type the password and it says "Authentication method 'password' failed". This happens repeatedly until "Connection lost".
I've also tried loading the id_rsa key file into ConnectBot. It says "Authentication method 'publickey' with key 'id_rsa' failed".
If I connect locally I get something different. It asks for "passphrase for key..." which I enter and then connects successfully.
Can someone please help me troubleshoot this? I've Googled but I suppose I'm not looking in the right places. Thanks!!
