If you want to use Cygwin SSH then use Cygwin CVS.

You just need to configure putty rather than Cygwin.  Download putty and
get putty working with your keys and then CVSNT will work with your
keys.  Putty is just a windows native ssh client.

The CVSNT toolchain is all native, on hpux, on mac, on solaris, on red
hat, on windows.  Using Cygwin on Windows is like using Wine on Linux.
If you were trying to use Wine and activestate perl on linux then asked
for help on a linux newsgroup you'd be told (in no uncertain terms) to
uninstall the lot and just use native perl.  That is exactly the same
advice you will get here: use the native windows toolchain.
