Hello Noel!

AT> I use windows port of SSH (by Gorden Chaffee, ssh-1.2.14-win32bin.zip)

Noel J. Bergman:

Thank you, Noel and Danny!
In fact Gorden Chaffee's ssh is has only a dumb terminal so it would
be a nightmare to use for real ssh access. I do have SSH 3.2.0
http://www.ssh.com

But, with that program I have another kind of difficulty:
by itself it generates keys of some format not recognized
by ssh server running on cvs.apache.org. The keys of this
format look like

---- BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
Comment: "[2048-bit dsa, d@trist, Sat Jun 07 2003 17:13:22]"
...
---- END SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----

---- BEGIN SSH2 ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY ----
Comment: "[2048-bit dsa, d@trist, Sat Jun 07 2003 17:13:22]"
...
---- END SSH2 ENCRYPTED PRIVATE KEY ----


In its turn keygen.exe supplied with Gorden Chaffee's port generates
keys that look like

public:
    1024 35 13916.....283 atagunov@trist

private:
    SSH PRIVATE KEY FILE FORMAT 1.1

    ....

Maybe keygen.exe generates some "ssh 1.1" keys while SSH 3.2.0 generates
"ssh 2" keys. In fact icarus only likes "ssh 1.1" keys.

For some reason I failed to make SSH 3.2.0 submit "ssh 1.1" key
generated with keygen.exe, that's why I have to login with SSH 3.2.0,
but that's not that bad, that is the full story.

Yup, I have seen Putty once, I even have the distribution somewhere
in my archs. A real nice program, all setup on one screen, but I like
SSH 3.2.0 better :-)

It looks like Gorden Chaffee's port of ssh is the only thing that
works with native windows port of cvs available from their official
site, and it works okay.

AT> Maybe the reason is that with scp I did not find a way to specify my
AT> cvs.apache.org username (atagunov), while my login name here at Win2K
AT> is different.

NJB>   scp <file> atagunov@cvs.apache.org:<file>

WOW! it worked!  Thanks, Noel very much! :-))
So the port of ssh is not that bad as it fuels both scp and cvs :-)

And I used that because I did not want to pay for the traffic to
get the real huge Cygwin.
