Re: SSHD startup problem and suggested fix
didn't you install openssh from the setup.exe ...
if not open setup.exe again leave the entrys "keep" as they are,
look for the Entry Openssh-3p2... and set the state to Openssh-3p.2... (..
should be the Version)
after the installation process the binary should be in /usr/sbin/sshd.exe
make a /bin/ssh-host-config
first the Procedure will ask you to install SSH as a Service ... you can ask
with yes and if you expirence
troubles with automatic startup follow the step below in ths Mail.
edit the /etc/sshd_config if needed ...
do a mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd if the file /etc/passwd doesnt existst or a
mkpasswd -d > /etc/passwd ifyou
want the Domain Users tobe able to login.
repeat last step with mkgroup if needed ..
using the windows command: net start "CYGWIN sshd"
should start the SSHD Server
