Script hangs on import arcpy from cygwin

We are trying to run a GP script on a windows server (with a Desktop license installed) from a Linux machine using ssh. Python scripts without ArcPy will run fine but a GP script with 'import arcpy' just hangs. The same is true if I log into the server using cygwin - plain python scripts run fine but if I add the arcpy import statement then the script hangs.

 

I assume this is something to do with the python paths.

 

Any experience/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
