Question OpenSSH Cygwin, Remote access without Password (different usernames)


Ok, to keep it simple.
Windows XP Pro running cygwin with openssh. with username "Alice", based on the windows username. "bob" wants to connect remotly over ssh (from a Ubuntu 7.04 box, not that it matters), which would normally just be a swap of ssh keys, but i dont know the procedure for doing this with different usernames.
Any ideas?

Open a terminal. Then type: ssh Alice@(put ip or hostname here).

That bit isnt a problem, its using ssh host keys to authenticate as opposed to password authentication
