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
