Thank you Achim,

I was already using a single quotes to send the command via ssh, such as:
ssh -q -n 'command here'

I added the single quotes on the path itself such as:

and this time it worked via cygwin terminal,
but it still does not work via ssh for some reason

On cygwin on the windows nodes, I made sure they are using bash
on the linux node by default we use kornshell

Since nothing has changed, do you think this difference in shell may
be the difference?
