It is Putty 0.56.
And I have solved the issue. I was getting prompted for my user
name. I assumed that indicated ssh-agent was not working. I entered
my user name, and I'm logged in.
I went to the configuration items and set "Auto-login username" to
'dan'. Now when I run putty, all I need to do is specify the
hostname, and I'm logged in.
[for those trying to find out how to do this, the hosts I logged into
already have my public ssh key in their ~/.ssh/authorized_keys2 file]
