Update: OpenSSH-2.1.1p4-3 for Cygwin 1.1.3

I want to announce the updated OpenSSH version 2.1.1p4-3.

- The previous binaries have used the path /usr/X11R6.3/bin/xauth by
  mistake. I changed that to the preferred path /usr/X11R6/bin/xauth.
- Eliminated a check for euid 0 in sshconnect which still could
  prevent rhosts authentication.

This port uses all new features of Cygwin 1.1.3 so it's not backward
compatible to older Cygwin versions.

The binary distribution is compiled for being installed under
/usr/local as the previous versions. However, there's a README under
/usr/doc/Cygwin which is the same file as the below mentioned
openssh-2.1.1p4.README in the download URL.

Please read the README!

There's a small script, named


which is intended for users who install OpenSSH for the first time.
It simplifies the first usage by creating the needed key files for
the host and the current user. Just start it after unpacking the
binary tar archive. The script is not part of the source archive.

This version provides SSH version 2 protocol but it's still
experimental so do not rely on complete and correct functionality.

SSH protocol versions 1.3 and 1.5 are still part of that version, so you
shouldn't have problems in communicating with other SSH-1.2.X versions.

You will find the port on

   openssh-2.1.1p4-3.tar.gz      binary distribution
   openssh-2.1.1p4.README        README file
   openssh-2.1.1p4-3-src.tar.gz  sources including Cygwin diffs

Compiling the sources requires the openSSL-0.9.5 port from the same URL.

Please send any request regarding that port to the mailing list
