Hello,

SSH password prompt captures the input correctly, and does not show it.

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$ ssh server
Password:
Password:

Rsync on the other hand won't even let me enter the password correctly.

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$ rsync -av xmppdb.db root@server:/tmp/
Password: 123
123
123
rsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at 
rsync.c(701) [sender=3.2.4dev]

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$ 123
-bash: 123: command not found

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$ 123
-bash: 123: command not found

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$ 123
-bash: 123: command not found

user@client /cygdrive/c/temp
$

Bye,
Marki
