I just tested with cygwin and a machine on the local network – and this works.  I don’t have gumstix hardware to test with – but I must assume that the info at http://docwiki.gumstix.com/Setting_Up_Communications#Running_an_SSH_server is correct – and that you should be challenged to accept the fingerprint if a connection is established.


Maybe putty (do a google search) would be more flexible than cygwin for ssh.

You need to install ssh using the cygwin installer.

Not sure. What does "the new hardware box never came up" mean?

In order for somebody to help you, we need detailed information.
