Ok the admin portion of https://www.concurrency.com/blog/may-2019/key-based-authentication-for-openssh-on-windows
did the trick.

Windows:
Copied C:\Users\rob\.ssh\authorized_keys to C:\ProgramData\ssh\administrators_authorized_keys
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $acl = Get-Acl C:\ProgramData\ssh\administrators_authorized_keys
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $acl.SetAccessRuleProtection($true, $false)
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $administratorsRule = New-Object system.security.accesscontrol.filesystemaccessrule("Administrators","FullControl","Allow")
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $systemRule = New-Object system.security.accesscontrol.filesystemaccessrule("SYSTEM","FullControl","Allow")
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $acl.SetAccessRule($administratorsRule)
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $acl.SetAccessRule($systemRule)
PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> $acl | Set-Acl

IBM i:
ssh gdl57 'dir \users\rob\*.* >\users\rob\diroutput2.txt'
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
@ WARNING: UNPROTECTED PRIVATE KEY FILE! @

rob@gdl57.dekko-1's password:

Exited that.

chmod 600 /home/ROB/.ssh/rob_gdisys
$
ssh gdl57 'dir \users\rob\*.* >\users\rob\diroutput2.txt'
$

Success!
Thank you everyone!
