sshd was stopped while that run because it did not login anyway. and still

sshd will run even if you're having problems connecting to it. I'm just making sure that you are testing with a running server. If not, then you want to make sure the server is running first.

The messages
 >>> debug1: Allocating pty.
 >>> debug1: session_pty_req: session 0 alloc /dev/tty2

were got running sshd -d in console.

I was suggesting that you run sshd with all the debug flags (i.e. "-d -d -d") to see if you'd get more useful information about your problem.


I have no clue. It look like the /dev is virtual fs for chown and real for
ls. But both are from cygwin:
$ which chown ls

/dev is a virtual. See:
