I'm experiencing certain issues with the built-in OpenSSH client that, according to the Win32-OpenSSH Github page, seem resolved in newer versions. The newest version is v7.9 while the preinstalled client is in version 7.6p1.
PS C:\> ssh -V
OpenSSH_for_Windows_7.6p1, LibreSSL 2.6.4
I understand it's possible to install OpenSSH both as an optional feature in the "apps & features" settings page, or using Powershell. That seems futile in my situation as the client clearly already is installed.
PS C:\> Get-WindowsCapability -Online | ? Name -like 'OpenSSH*'
Name : OpenSSH.Client~~~~0.0.1.0
State : Installed
Name : OpenSSH.Server~~~~0.0.1.0
State : NotPresent
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible to update the client this way and the Github page doesn't seem to publish binaries. Does this mean I have to make the binaries myself if I want to use newer versions, and would they even work as a replacement not being signed or anything? Is there maybe a simpler way?
