Remote Momentum sims -- PVM with SSH

Hello,

Has anybody been able to get PVM working with SSH from a PC to a Linux box?

It was fairly easy to get it to work from Solaris->Linux and Linux->Linux, but I have not been able to get it to work for PC->Linux remote simulation.

My SSH keys are set up properly, as I can ssh to the remote linux machine directly from the cygwin install in ADS, and I even verified that I could run ssh seamlessly in an ael file and execute commands on a remote machine using the system command in AEL code.

Still, for some reason I get the PVM error when I try to bring up the PVM cluster:
"Cannot connect to RSH Port!"

I have set the following environment variable:
EESOFPVM_RSH = \ads2005a\tools\bin\ssh -l username

(I have to use the -l option because my Linux login is different than my Windows login...)

At any rate, that seemed to be all that was needed in the unix version of the software, so I am having trouble figuring out why it won't work from the PC...Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
