I am trying to ssh into a server from cygwin on Windows 7. I created public/private keys using ssh-keygen, and didn't add a passphrase. I then added them to the authorized_keys on the server. When I try to ssh, I get asked for a passphrase.
I used ssh -vvv, and I can see that the public key is accepted, and that my "empty" passphrase file doesn't work.
I also don't have any problems logging in when I ssh from my Ubuntu machine.
Finally, just for the sake of completeness, I tried making a new key pair, and adding a passphrase. When I get asked for it, it also fails to decrypt my private key.
Has anyone encountered something similar? Know what to do?
