I am having issue while establishing a ssh connection from Linux to Windows

using ssh connection(Cygwin) to Windows  and manually enter my passowrd.
But whn I use public key to authenticate my user(making a password less
connection), it fails. Is it a bug with CYgwin?
No, Windows simply does not give you full access to your normal
privileges when you log in remotely without a password.  Specifically,
you won't be able to access anything that is considered non-local, like
external fileshares.
If I setup password-less login to the cygwin ssh server, using authorized-keys, I can access all remote shares from cygwin,
and also from cmd, started from cygwin with `winpty cmd`, for that matter.
Possibly, if the remote login is the first login of the user, the mounts will just have to be established? (Using `net use`)

See: https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html#ntsec-setuid-overview

If you trust the server in question and all its administrators and other
users, you can use "Method 3" as described above.  Don't forget to set
up cygserver if you want to be able to set or change the password with a
non-administrative account.

Achim.
