• Support for alternative key agents in PuTTY SSH client

    From Dmitry Katsubo@21:1/5 to All on Sat Sep 22 12:13:32 2018
    Dear PuTTY developers & community,

    With growing interest to OpenSSH for Windows (https://github.com/PowerShell/Win32-OpenSSH) I wonder if it would be possible to implement support for OpenSSH agent (via Windows native pipe)? Or (alternatively or supplementary) support for Cygwin ssh-agent
    (via Cygwin or MSYS socket)? With "support" I mean that PuTTY SSH client is able to get private key from another key agent.

    In general I wonder how different is the PuTTY's client-agent protocol from one implemented in SSH?

    Thanks in advance.
