It is possible?

Cygwin is installed on the windows environment. I connect to windows environment over ssh with follow command:

ssh user@ip /cygdriver/c/run.bat. After introducing the password the message 'No such file or directory' appears. Any suggestion how I can make it?

Check that you're entering 'cygdrive' and not 'cygdriver' If it doesn't work try to run this command CMD /C C:\run.bat

I tried to execute the follow command ssh Administrator@IP /C C:\run.bat and don't have success. – user753536 Mar 15 '13 at 9:19
it's CMD /C C:\run.bat – golimar Mar 15 '13 at 10:43

Is "cygdriver" the right path?

I suggest trying to make the command work locally in the Cygwin shell on the Windows machine, then copy-and-paste the known-working command into your ssh script which will run remotely.

sorry, the right path is /cygdrive/c/run.bat – user753536 Mar 15 '13 at 9:17
