How can I reuse an ssh connection on windows? Ive been using these settings in my _vimrc for sftp and noticed that each time I browse or try to edit a file with netrw, a new connection is created which takes an awful long time.
let g:netrw_cygwin = 0 let g:netrw_ssh_cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink.exe" -batch -T -ssh' let g:netrw_scp_cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\pscp.exe" -batch -q -scp' let g:netrw_sftp_cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\pscp.exe" -batch -q -sftp' let g:netrw_list_cmd = '"C:\Program Files\PuTTY\plink.exe" firstname.lastname@example.org ls -Fa '
I have also tried to use cyg-wrapper.sh to avoid this problem
but a cmd window opens up with this error
/bin/bash -c "/usr/bin/scp -q -P 22 "myuser@mysite .com:/home" "C:\cygwin\tmp\VIA3996.tmp"" The system cannot find the path specified. shell returned 1 Hit any key to close this window...
I tried scp because I didnt know how to use a private key for sftp at the time within cygwin
