Source – UNIX, Destination – Windows Cygwin (SSH Password-less Authentication)

On Windows Server

In windows cygwin create user, say MyUser, locally and also create user in cygwin

cd C:\cygwin

Cygwin.bat

 

Administrator@MYWINDOWSHOST ~

$ /bin/mkpasswd -l -u MyUser >>/etc/passwd

MyUser@MYWINDOWSHOST ~

$ ls

MyUser@MYWINDOWSHOST ~

$ ls -al

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa

Generating public/private rsa key pair.

Enter file in which to save the key (/home/MyUser/.ssh/id_rsa):

Created directory ‘/home/MyUser/.ssh’.

Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):

Enter same passphrase again:

Your identification has been saved in /home/MyUser/.ssh/id_rsa.

Your public key has been saved in /home/MyUser/.ssh/id_rsa.pub.

The key fingerprint is:

7d:40:12:1c:7b:c1:7f:39:ac:f5:1a:c5:73:ae:81:34 MyUser@MYWINDOWSHOST

The key’s randomart image is:

$ cd .ssh

$ ls

Then push that rsa_pub into that destination authorized_keys

cat .ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh MyUser@MYWINDOWSHOST ‘cat >>  .ssh/authorized_keys’

 

ssh  -v MyUser@MYWINDOWSHOST
