Cannot connect to a Sun server using xterm

Mon May 2 11:22:00 GMT 2005

Hello Alexander,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Following your hints, I entered in the xterm window in the PC:
xterm -e ssh -Y <sun-host> &
Then a SSH window appeared in the PC:
The authenticity of host 'borsen1 (a.b.c.d)' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is x:y:z:... .
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'borsen1,a.b.c.d' (RSA) to the list of known 
Whatever I entered as the password, the password question reappeared, 
and eventually the ssh window was closed.

When I installed Cygwin ssh, I did not use any password.

Any hints ?
