SSH key authentification problem

I'm trying to setup a CVS over SSH connection between a windows 2k PC and a
linux server. Since my CVS client is the one embedded in JBuilder9, we need
to establish a passwordless authentification, thus using keys.
I've installed cygwin and followed the instructions found here : I have generated a couple private/public
key, given my public key to the server administrator who added it where he
had to. My private key is in the /.ssh directory.
When, in a windows command line, type
	ssh mylogin@theserver
I get a request for my password. Same problem when I use the -i id_dsa
I've got a CVS_RSH = c:\cywgin\bin\ssh system variable and C:\cygwin\bin
added to my PATH.
What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for helping,
