In Windows 2003 when i run plink without arguments, it says "unable to open connection: host does not exist"
(And of course when it is run with arguments)
What can be the cause? I am becoming crazy

To add to the previous comment... I found that using putty to authenticate a session on the machine in question creates the sshHostKeys registrations in the registry and plink can then use that for it's authenticating. This works quite well and a simple statement like:
plink -ssh my.hostname.com
will automatically get you to a user prompt on the host machine. No fuss! worked for me!
