(solved) git on cygwin177

Environment: windows vista, cygwin

Problem: I tried to test my github ssh key setup & received an error

gavin@yoda ~$ ssh git@github.com
Enter passphrase for key ‘/home/gavin/.ssh/id_rsa’: ***********************
PTY allocation request failed on channel 0

Solution: disable pseudo tty allocation (via this forum posting)

gavin@yoda ~$ ssh -T git@github.com
Enter passphrase for key ‘/home/gavin/.ssh/id_rsa’:
ERROR: Hi javouhey! You’ve successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access
