    ssh in cygwin


    I just downloaded and installed cygwin on my work computer. I started it and tried to ssh. This is the main reason I wanted it. Says command not found. Since when does cygwin not come with ssh? and how do I get it working?

    Thanks

    When I installed Cygwin, it came with very few apps in the default installation. You can find a lot of apps (including ssh) by running the installer thing, which has a step that lets you select packages.

    Sorry I can't be more specific. I'm at home, and I only have Cygwin at work.

    I looked through the menu and couldn't find it. Look when you get home and let me know if possible
    Thanks

    PS it used to come default.

    Nevermind I found it and it is working brilliantly.

    Thanks.
