$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org Could not create directory'/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/vidar kongsli/.ssh'. The authenticity of host 'login.somehost.no (...)' can't be established. RSA key fingerprint is .... Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? no Host key verification failed. $ set | grep HOME HOME=/cygdrive/d/home/vidar HOMEDRIVE=C: HOMEPATH=/cygdrive/d/home/vidar $ ls ~/.ssh id_rsa id_rsa.pub
Any idea why ssh does not use the $HOME environment variable when it tries to locate ~/.ssh?
