I have Windows 10 running Virtualbox with 2 VMs running Fedora 25.  I have 
followed 'Pacemaker 1.1 Clusters from Scratch' 9th edition up through 
chapter 7.  It works.  I am now trying to fence VMs.  I use Cygwin ssh 
daemon and of course bash is default for the options.

I have used command below from one of the nodes and get the following 

fence_vbox -vv --ip= --username=durwin 
--identity-file=/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub --password= --plug="node1" 
Delay 0 second(s) before logging in to the fence device
Running command: /usr/bin/ssh  durwin at -i 
/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub -p 22 -t '/bin/bash -c "PS1=\\[EXPECT\\]#\ /bin/bash 
--noprofile --norc"'
Received: Enter passphrase for key '/root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub':

Sent: VBoxManage list runningvms

Connection timed out

I tried the following commands from a DOS shell on the Windows host and 
commands successfully executed (from Cygwin terminal it fails).

VBoxManage controlvm node1 acpipowerbutton
VBoxManage startvm node1 --type=gui

I am aware that some Windows executables do not communicate with Cygwin 
terminals.  Is there a way to pass ssh options so that VBoxManage is 
executed from DOS shell?

Thank you,
