No, it did fail in file-notify-test02-events. No remote access.

file-notify-test02-events-remote would be skipped, like
file-notify-test00-availability-remote and
file-notify-test01-add-watch-remote above.

null-device is an indicator NOT to try remote test cases.

"/ssh::/tmp" is indeed for accessing a local sshd. Nothing I would
assume for MS Windows.
