pageant and cygwin ssh

Threaded View
I am running putty and Cygwin under WinXP.  Is
there a way that I can have Cygwin's openssh client
talk to pagaent to use its stored keys for authentication?
Sometimes I want a stand-alone putty window, sometimes
I want a quick login from a shell prompt.  Any advice
is welcomed.    -ADM

OpenSSH cannot talk to Windows pageant, I'm afraid.

If you've got a reasonably recent version of cygwin and don't get
bitten by the problems noted in: might want to try running plink, which is one of the PuTTY
tools and can talk to pageant.
