Re: Unable to use iisreset through ssh

This indicates iisreset requires that Windows authenticate you
before it will work.  OpenSSH with password authentication does this.
Public key authentication does not.

Using password allowed it to work... Why is that? I'd really like to get it to work with the certificate method.

I have a weird problem where if I try to use iisreset through a ssh session to my cygwin box then it gives an error saying that only Local Admin's can use this command. But I am a local admin, and if I use iisreset directly on the PC through bash session it works fine. When I run 'id' command it also says I'm part of the Administrators group. And my entry in /etc/passwd looks right. My CYGWIN variable does include 'ntsec' as part of the settings.

What can I do to fix this?

What authentication method are you using for ssh? If you're not using password authentication, try that.
