I've reviewed some of the Emacs tramp documentation, but I'm not sure
what the issue is.
If I'm using Cygwin, I don't need the putty components for this, do I?
No, I make ssh connections through Emacs tramp without putty.
When I attempt to open a text file in my homedir on a remote host,
which I can ssh to (passwordless) from the shell, it just times out.
The *Messages* buffer shows this (fqhn is the hostname):
Tramp: Opening connection for fqhn using scp...
Tramp: Sending command ‘exec ssh -o ControlMaster=auto -o
ControlPath='tramp.%C' -o ControlPersist=no -e none fqhn’
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell...
Timeout reached, see buffer ‘*tramp/scp fqhn*’ for details
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell...failed
Tramp: Opening connection for fqhn using scp...failed
There doesn't appear to be a buffer named "*tramp/scp fqhn*".
Sorry, I don't know enough about tramp to diagnose this. Maybe it would
help if you would say exactly what commands you gave. And does the
problem occur if you start with 'emacs -Q'?
