I have the default sshd_config. Doing a ssh localhost on host works, both with password authentication and with public key authentication after running ssh-user-config on the host. So I would say that yes sshd_config is configured to do public key authentication.
I have looked at /etc/passwd and /etc/group on the host and client machines. The Sid match for the group and userid that I am using. Other portions of Cygwin act correctly for my domain userid on both the host and the client machines. So I think that /etc/passwd and /etc/group are OK. Is there anything specific I should be checking in these files?
I am off on vacation for a week now, so I will not be able to progress this problem until 24 October 2011.
