- Subject: Japanese Windows login name and SSH
My Windows XP login name is in Japanese: ライアン
As this is not a legal UNIX username AFAIK, I have
the following in /etc/profile:
I also changed the relevant line in /etc/passwd
Note that I changed the username and home, but left the
U-ICHIGO\ライアン part before the SID untouched.
My CYGWIN environment variable is set to "tty ntsec".
This seems to be working OK, except that password-based
authentication is not working when I connect to my Cygwin sshd.
Publickey authentication DOES work, however.
I was wondering if perhaps the Japanese string in the
additional pw_gecos field is the cause of the problem
with password authentication.
Thanks for your help,
