I have verified the keys work by connecting using the cygwin terminal which connects without asking for a password (if i put the private key in the cygwin folder named as it expects it).
The only problem I have with the guidance is that I cannot copy the files required at the bottom from the bin folder. Obviously things have moved on since the post so the following file is not available to copy - cygminires.dll and another is a newer version - cygcrypto-0.9.8.dll
is instead cygcrypto-1.0.0.dll
I guess the real problem occurs when i try and run deltacopy - it is not happy with these files it seems and gives an error -
The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application.
