I've installed OpenSSH on a Windows 10 machine, and can connect to it from the Linux command line with ssh or scp, giving the cmd.exe "shell". But tramp hangs on Waiting for prompts from remote shell:

Tramp: Opening connection for win using ssh...
Tramp: Sending command ‘exec ssh   -o ControlMaster=auto -o ControlPath='tramp.%C' -o ControlPersist=no -e none win’
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell...failed
Tramp: Opening connection for win using ssh...failed

also with (setq tramp-use-ssh-controlmaster-options nil)

Tramp: Opening connection for win using ssh...
Tramp: Sending command ‘exec ssh    -e none win’
Tramp: Waiting for prompts from remote shell...failed
Tramp: Opening connection for win using ssh...failed

Is there some special trick?


I've tried changing the Windows OpenSSH shell to bash, which makes regular ssh-ing and git cloning nicer, but doesn't seem to help tramp.

I've also tried both

 (setq explicit-shell-file-name "cmd"
       explicit-cmd-args '("/q"))

and

 (setq explicit-shell-file-name "powershell"
       explicit-powershell-args '("-file" "-"))

to no avail.

Use method sftp:

/sftp:WhoYou@WinHost:/C:/Users/WhoYou/SomeFile.txt

WFM as of this morning, using Emacs 26.1 on Linux Mint Debian Edition 2 -- so both quite old. Anything more up-to-date should at least be able to do the same.
