I see - interoperability issue.

Therefore it becomes imperative on the Windows side to match username
case exactly and we need to explain this.

However I would say that the case of the domain or computername
shouldn't matter?

I just tested with cygwin1.dll (13 Feb 2019) and this worked:

ssh COMPUTERNAME+username@computername

however this didn't work:

ssh computername+username@computername

Am I not understanding something?

Thanks!

Bill
