Teraterm ssh does not need cygwin. Moreover, it can just be copied to a
computer, no installation is needed. The file of a zip file is about 1.2
MB, so that it can be transferred on a single diskette. It can also be run
directly from a memory stick. I found it a few years ago on the
installation CD of Redhat Linux 6.0 and I still use it if I must use ssh
from someone else's Windows computer. WinSCP doen not need cygwin either
afaik but it must be installed.
