I used http://openmaniak.com/rancid_tutorial.php tutorial for installing Rancid on my Windows + Cygwin machine.
However I cannot connect to any device via "clogin x.x.x.x". To be honest, I have no idea why. 
I have ping, telent and ssh working from my cygwin machine to my network equipment.

Let's assume that I have catalyst 2600 switch with local username and password. I can access it via telnet.

In my .cloginrc file there are lines as above:
add method telnet
add user ryan 
add password magicPass enablePass

At /home/rancid/var/groupName/router.db looks like that:

But when I'm trying to execute clogin command, nothing happens:

Administrator at backup /home/rancid
$ /home/rancid/bin/clogin
Administrator at backup /home/rancid

Can anyone help?
