- Subject: recent rshd/mkpasswd
I've been noticing lately ( post 1.3.2 I beleive) that the result of
mkpasswd -d doesn't allow me to perform non-interactive
rsh or rcp's.
dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> rsh gable3 ls
gable3: Permission denied.
But if I use my previous passwd file (I generate these proceduraly nightly
on a 1.3.2 machine, then dist to all of my other machines) everything works
dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> rsh gable3 ls -al
drwxrwxrwx 10 Administ Domain A 12288 Jan 9 17:11 .
drwxrwxrwx 834 Administ Domain A 172032 Dec 11 17:52 ..
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ Domain A 284 Jun 8 2001 .ICEauthority
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ Domain A 5834 Jan 30 17:39 .bash_history
-rwxrwxrwx 10 Administ Domain A 6913 May 4 2001 .cshrc
-rwxrwxrwx 1 Administ Domain A 747 Jan 30 17:58 .history
The relevant passwd entries are:
dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> grep dobrin passwd.1.3.2
dobrin@GABLE3:/etc> grep dobrin passwd.1.3.9
CYGWIN variable : binmode tty ntsec
I haven't found anything on the list about changes, but I've also been
having problems lately getting complete listings when I do a google search
(for instance I just did a google search of "dobrin site:cygwin.com" and it
didn't bring up any of my recent list additions.... I hope I haven't asked
so many stupid questions that I'm being filtered :) )
Thanks for any help
