Re: Fwd: Need help port forwarding with ssh and cygwin...

$ ssh -vvv
usage: ssh [-1246AaCfgKkMNnqsTtVvXxYy] [-b bind_address] [-c cipher_spec]
           [-D [bind_address:]port] [-E log_file] [-e escape_char]
           [-F configfile] [-I pkcs11] [-i identity_file]
           [-L [bind_address:]port:host:hostport] [-l login_name] [-m mac_spec]
           [-O ctl_cmd] [-o option] [-p port]
           [-Q cipher | cipher-auth | mac | kex | key]
           [-R [bind_address:]port:host:hostport] [-S ctl_path] [-W host:port]
           [-w local_tun[:remote_tun]] [user@]hostname [command]

here is what I get from the mintty terminal.  I checked the sshd log
and it is empty.

The windows event viewer is pretty hard to decide what is going on so
I am not sure about using that.  Should I look under something like
Cygwin?  Where is that/
