  5. Start `net start sshd’

 

Install on system from which you want to do a remote command invocation:

  1. Installing CygWin
  2. Within Cygwin, install SSH complete
  3. ssh-keygen -t rsa -C username@localsystem
  4. Copy the key from /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pub
  5. Updated that in /home/username/.ssh/known_hosts
