I found that ssh is not included in the default cygwin install.
Once I chose a mirror site and was in the "select packages" dialog box, I typed "openssh" into the search box. The package that contains it was shown. I clicked on it and set it to install the binary for the ssh command in addition to the default install.
I also found that in cygwin I had to change the "apt-get install nginx" command in the book to "aptitude install nginx".
Later on, I had to do a chmod 755 on the draw folder and the draw.html and draw.js
files before I could successfully run the app from the ec2 instance.
