ssh connection from W2K to Solaris 2.5.1

W2K server running,
Cygwin version 188.8.131.52 ssh & rsync installed.
Solaris SparkStation 20 running,
Currently SSH from the W2K box works perfectly, I can connect to the
Solaris box just fine, rsync works from both boxes, I can connect to the
anonymous rsync at samba.org just fine.
I am trying to create a quick way to back up files from the Solaris box
onto the W2K box with a scheduled task. I have run ssh-keygen on the W2K
box (no pass phrase) and installed the indentity.pub file as
~/.ssh/known_hosts/authorized_keys on the Solaris box. I should be able
to task to connect and execute rsync on the Solaris box, copying files
back to the W2K box. I've done this many times with FBSD and Linux and
it works beautifully.
My problem, and maybe I'm just thick headed, I cannot get the W2K box to
connect without requiring a password! I cannot get Cygwin to run rsync
as anything other than the user that installed Cygwin, and I cannot have
Administrator as a user in Solaris (too many characters).
So rsync over ssh isn't working, in fact ssh -l root
mail4.totallogic.com from the W2K box require a password even though
I've installed the identity.pub file.
Are any other admins with Cygwin/ssh/rsync running a sucessful setup?
and would you share?
