This cygwin stuff is pretty slick! I'm hitting one snag, though, as I am trying
to setup sshd for remote access by limited users.
I've made a user "dnr" which is a member of the group "Limited SSHD users" (gid
1006). After mkpasswd -l and mkgroup -l'ing, I've manually set the gid of user
dnr to 1006 in /etc/passwd. Running as Administrator, id yields the expected
$ id dnr
uid=1004(dnr) gid=1006(Limited SSHD users) groups=1006(Limited SSHD users)
However, when I ssh in to dnr@localhost, cygwin doesn't seem to be able to find
a group with gid 1006. (And I get the message upon login that your group is
$ id dnr
uid=1004(dnr) gid=1006(mkgroup) groups=1006(mkgroup)
Is there some local policy I need to set for the group "Limited SSHD users"?
Any ideas for a workaround?
Thanks a bunch!
