Power of Cygwin

I just found out some cool tricks in Cywgin and Putty.

1. I know how to store passwords now using
PuTTY Key Generator
PLink
This is done by generating a public key and putting it onto your server under ~/.ssh/autherizationkeys
and putting the private key anywhere on your computer and then pointing to it from the PuTTy Configuration "Private Key file Authentication"

2. I now know how to create a SSH Daemon so that I can log into my computer's ssh terminal.
