SSH from Windows to Unix Server

Ok, first off i want to apologize as this problem has nothing to do with WinSCP, but i really need an answer to this question and this seems to be the only ssh forum i can find. If anyone has another good for to suggest i would be thankful.
In the meantime, if anyone can help me with this.

I'm setting up a ssh connection from my windows machine to a unix server. I installed OpenSSH for windows, version v3.8.1.

I've set up my keys as follows:
(ignore the !)
1. Went to DOS typed "ssh-!ke!ygen -t rsa"
2. Hit enter on all options
3. Got from windows .ssh dir and used WinSCP to place it into .ssh directory on Unix machine.
4. Typed "cat > authorized_keys" on unix machine
5. Went back to DOS and typed "ssh -v hostname -l username"

Here is the output i get.
debug1: expecting SSH2_MSG_KEX_DH_GEX_REPLY

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
