comment Cygwin: Run a script in mintty/bash
Nice finding. I won't pull it into my answer, because depending on how your HDD has been formatted, the old 8.3 format might be unsupported. Anyway: For me it works even without the -ms switch! This is my console then: Starting /bin/bash.exe >> xxx@xxx /cygdrive/c/Program Files I think it is a question of setting the right quotes.

You can use the actual webserver on VM2 as 'proxy' by requesting data from this host.

To be more exact, using your answer leads to /bin/bash: C:cygwinhomeNippeytest.sh: command not found

comment Cygwin: Run a script in mintty/bash
Thanks for your feedback. It actually didn't solve my problem, as Cygwin expects Linux "/" paths and not M$ "\" paths. But you pushed my motivation to try harder! I will add a separate answer.

No, it didn't. I just noticed that ncftp would be a solution - - - if there wouldn't be the corporate firewall :/

comment Mirroring with wget - Exclude old files
To be honest, it is worse than linux but better than windows: I am in a working environment where Linux is not allowed (Network Policy etc..), so I have to use Cygwin.... I will see if I can mount things there and post back next week

comment How can I automatically set write permissions on mounting a usb drive in linux?
Thank you. But I had to alter it in order to make it work: sudo mount -o umask=0,uid=nobody /dev/something /mnt/somewhere It only works without setting the gid-parameter.
