Yeah and I can tell you from experience that the best way is to useDavid Kastrup <address@hidden> writes:

`plink'. Its one of the `putty' set of tools.
Google up the `putty download page' and get putty, plink, pscp,
All will be useful at some point. In emacs, to use plink it very
similar to ange ftp
C-x C-f /plink:address@hidden:/some/directory/file
(Where myuser is the user on `host', you will login as)
Plink as method works from vista too, where ssh as method never seems
to (for me).
Also the putty terminal.. if you want to ssh to windows, is quite a bit
nicer than the one with cygwin.
The one big calling card for a cygwin terminal (for me) is that it
speaks smb.. if you have shares setup on the network hosts.
cygwin terminal can do things like: `cd //host/share'
I'm told you can get smb (as method) to work in tramp too but I
haven't been able too. But since I had an array of other methods.. I
didn't try all that hard.
