After writing an article about Microsoft’s PowerShell, I kept getting search referrals from people trying to get PowerShell working with SSH. Since I had some free time, I thought an article describing how to do this would be useful. I just spent the past hour trying to get PowerShell working with Cygwin’s sshd. It seems to be impossible. Cmd.exe works fine. I’m trying to track down the technical reason this won’t work, until then I’m going to keep my cussing to myself. I’m stunned this doesn’t work. Update: I contacted one of the PowerShell developers and got a work around to make this work. I’ll clean up the article and post it. The work around is a little ugly, but it will get you PowerShell through sshd.
