SUMMARY: SSH isn't doing anything.
> ssh user@www@.yserver.com > ssh oshdfojsfsdof -psd sdfisdfjdsf
(does nothing no matter what you pass to the commandline. No output, no errors, nothing)
FULLY STORY: I recently installed Cygwin so that I could run some rsyncs utilizing SSH keys without having to figure out how to set this up on Windows. I had it all working beautifully, but then found I needed to install more parts of Cygwin to have cron working. I added some packages, admittedly not paying as much attention as I should have to what packages I installed.
I setup the cron and found next morning it didn't work. Lots of debugging later and I realized that rsync was giving me errors because the SSH command simply doesn't want to be... well... ssh. It's as if I ran nothing at all.
I'm so confused because everything was working prior to running the Cygwin setup again and adding additional packages.
