I am trying to get openSSH working on a windows 2003 server. After much help from EE I am at the point where the services starts and I can make a connection using my private key and passphrase using CyberDuck and sftp on my workstation. My event viewer says:

PID 2188 : subsystem request for sftp.
PID 2188 : Accepted publickey for FTP_User from 172.16.8.120 port 50118 ssh2.

The problem is all I have is a blank screen after the connection. The firewall is off on both ends. I attached a screenshot.

To transfer a file, you need to use pscp or winscp.

I just found out that the remote User is using cyberfusion to send out files. Does openssh work with that?

It would if you have your server's FTP setup and running.
The FTP server does not have to be open, it will be accessed via the SSH connection that will effectively create a tunnel to the FTP process.
This is based on a quick look what cyberfusion provides.
