My apologies - I didn't intend to be offensive.  If it's any consolation - I
have no problems using ssh to connect to a Linux sshd.

Ah, difficulty there - I'm not the system's administrator.  Does anybody
have some arguments as to _why_ I need these rights on the domain?  (apart
from wanting to get sshd working)

Is the domain case sensitive?  Can I find out what Cygwin thinks the domain
is?  Should my /etc/passwd look like...


Or have I got the domain in the wrong location?

Thanks for responding to a stupid newbie to all this Corinna.  I _use_
cygwin's toolset every day and am (slowly) learning more about it and the
unix paradigms it's built on.
