Re: how to create a new user
OK. I have a particular user who already has a windows account,
but now i'd like to be able to allow that user (username: billy)
to ssh into the domain controller (to be able to use cygwin).
What I did so far is `mkpasswd -d | grep billy >> /etc/passwd`.
Then billy tries to do `ssh host_name -l billy`, but billy gets
So then i thought that billy might need a new password, so i ran
`passwd billy`, and gave him a new password. Still no luck.
This is why I was asking about documentation about creating a new
user. Windows documentation is not enough; this is cygwin related.
Do you have any idea about what I should try to let this user log in ?
Thanks for your time.
