Greetings, I've really tried to look through the archives and the FAQ and can't
find a reason why my problem is occurring.
I am running latest cygwin and installed sshd as a service under XP. I am
running bash as well.
When I start a bash shell on the Windows box itself, system variables (as set
under the Windows "environment variables" facility) are visible in bash under
"env". I'm not using User variables.
When I log into a bash shell (as me) remotely through sshd, many variables are
NOT visible. What's even weirder is that some are and some are not. So for
instance, "PROCESSOR_LEVEL" and "PROCESSOR_IDENTIFIER" and "PATHEXT" are
visible, but other variables (the ones I define, in general) are not.
How can I make my system environment variables appear when I ssh through sshd?
