On Windows you can't use if with OpenSSH.  AFAIK, OpenSSH is not
available as native application but only as a Cygwin binary.  This could
be made work somehow but it has not been done.  However, Putty is
supported: If you add "enable-putty-support" to gpg-agent.conf,
gpg-agent will work as a Pageant replacement.  You should fire up
gpg-agent before Pageant, though.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
