well, now I have the source but it won't compile.
This is getting to be very annoying.
Suggestions welcome.
Amyone know the file dependencies? Oh I guess I'll dig through the makefiles. 
But that shouldn't be necessary...

I know, I tried ssh, ssh1, ssh2, openssh, Openssh, etc etc. (Now that would be 
funny if "etc" worked...*smile*)
It isn't installed. I just have to find where to download it. The download page 
is a little cryptic.

Thanks, I just tried executing openssh and it wasn't found. But I'll see if
I can download it somewhere.
Little nits can take so much time. I appreciate the info!

Cygwin does have an Openssh package. I have no experience with it, but
here's the information from setup.ini:
sdesc: "The OpenSSH server and client programs"
ldesc: "OpenSSH is a program for logging into a remote machine and for
executing commands on a remote machine.  It can replace rlogin and rsh,
providing encrypted communication between two machines."
category: Net
requires: bash coreutils crypt csih cygrunsrv cygwin diffutils editrights
gawk g
rep libopenssl098 zlib libwrap0 libgcc1 libssp0 libedit0
version: 5.5p1-2
install: release/openssh/openssh-5.5p1-2.tar.bz2 759479
source: release/openssh/openssh-5.5p1-2-src.tar.bz2 877206

Hi all --
My needs are simple: I need a workable ssh client to run on my windows box
and exchange files with a remote linux site with my login on it.
I feel like I'm going crazy. I looked for openssh and found a page for it,
which led me to winscp, which sounded like what I wanted, but I can't get
into a state I can work with.  What I'd really like is not something like
telnet or sftp, but rather a bash shell that I can run remotely.
I haven't done this in a while and need someone to jog my memory as to
tools are best for doing this.  I understand that MSYS and MinGW have an
command that works, but I have MSYS set up and it can't find ssh.  I also
have cygwin set up, bu it also has no ssh.
I considered putty, but thought I'd ask the list first.  How many trees do
have to bark at before I find the right command?  Someone please post a
note. Thanks in advance!
