I have a machine with cygwin installed in and several disk mapped. When I start a connection like this:


... cygwin starts and the .mkshrc script is run which make these disks visible. But when I run a command directly like this:

ssh "ls /cygwin"

...this script is not run and I can see the mapped disks. These is a problem since I want to run a script which install and point things to these mapped drives.
