Re: Error running ssh windows binary in cygwin

       This problem is probably due to using incompatible versions of
the cygwin DLL.
       Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
       and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent
version *should*
       reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
       installed the cygwin distribution.  Rebooting is also suggested if you
       are unable to find another cygwin DLL.

Following directions mentioned in above error message, when I search for
I find two matches

the first is a 64 bit and the second a 32bit used for cross compilation.
Have you installed every package available ? Why ?

Went ahead and deleted
opened a new cygwin terminal and the error from ssh.exe would not go away.

I know there is a version of git available through cygwin install as
well which does not
have these errors. The git.exe which got installed from windows binary
does not have
any error in starting up. It is the ssh.exe which comes along with it
which has the problem.

Have you tried the ssh coming with Cygwin ?
