Some days ago I was able to
scp to the remote server from my windows server 2003 using cygwin to copy the
scp (id_rsa.pub location) email@example.com now it(
scp) seems to be not working. I have not installed or removed any of the cygwin packages.
I can still automatically connect to the server using
ssh. On the same server while working form other Ubuntu machine,
ssh are working perfect. It does not even prompt for the password while using
scp -v c:/firstname.lastname@example.org:~/temp/headers.csv Executing: /usr/bin/ssh -x -oClearAllForwardings=yes -n -v -- c scp -v /outfiles/headers.csv email@example.com:~/temp/headers.csv OpenSSH_6.0p1, OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012 debug1: Connecting to c [XXXXXXXXXX] port 22. debug1: connect to address XXXXXXXXXX port 22: Connection timed out ssh: connect to host c port 22: Connection timed out
While ssh has the following debug message:

Another question I would like to add here is:
I am able to start the cron service but the cron job doesn't work. I receive an error saying
(ORPHAN)no password set for the cron job while querying with cronlogs. There seems to be some problem with my Cygwin settings apparently, but I am not able to diagnose them.
Besides the numerous search in the cygwin FAQ almost 2 days of googling still in a same situation, stuck. Basically I am trying to automate a file transfer using
scp any other option to do that would help, I have been stuck quite long.
May be not a good idea but I got ask this. Can firewall be suspected for the cause, if so how verify that? I had read somewhere about
netstat but did not bother to continue, justified or miss-justified by the idea of
ssh was successful using the same port no. 22.
