All other prerequisites will be selected automatically. 3) Run Cygwin terminal as administrator 4) Run the command

5) Create a unique windows user for uploads with Server Manager 6) To let Cygwin 'see' the new user, run:
mkpasswd --local > /etc/passwd
mkgroup --local > /etc/group
7) Create /home/newuser/.ssh folder, and upload / generate keys for the new user. Don't forget authorized_keys from the repository.  8) Login as the new user, and run the following:
chmod 700 .ssh
chmod 600 .shh/authorized_keys
