The same way you'd run any ssh command?
if ssh host uname \| grep -q CYGWIN; then
echo "it's running cygwin";
echo "it's not running cygwin";
I was just now thinking about this. I just finished using "ssh host >
out.dat" to debug why my rsync was not working. This made me think to
use a command to know the OS for my purpose and while thinking about
that read your mail!
Thanks for your suggestion,
