I am trying to run a windows batch file from a ssh login. I have successfully installed cygwin w/ OpenSSH on the server (windows 2003).
I can log in and run the file, but the file does not run properly because it relies on an environment variable. I discovered that for security reasons not all environment variables are added to the ssh shell. I added the environment variable I need (in ~/.profile), but the file still errors out.
I modified the file and had it output the environment variable that was causing issues before, and I discovered that it was still not set. So, even though I added the environment variable, and it exists in the shell, it is not available in the shell the batch file is being run in.
How would I add the environment variable to the batch file's shell?
Modifying the file permanently is not an option; it is created by another program, and I am trying to write a git hook to run the file on another machine after a "git push"
