is there anyway to do a passwordless logon using cygwin for ssh sessions? More precisely does anyone know of any guide or suggestion how can i configure to use cygwin with sshpass utility like we have on ubuntu?


you can use the same utilities to set up passwordless key authentication as from ubuntu. the procedure should be exactly the same (ssh-keygen to generate keys, copy the pub key to server and add it to .ssh/authorized_keys). if you do have a passphrase for your key, then you can use ssh agent to forward your credentials, etc.
