- Subject: login and ssh: can't authenticate
Yes, I have read everything in /usr/doc/Cygwin, and searched this
mailing list, and read all of Corinna's well-written posts, and yet
login and ssh refuse to log me in.
My /etc/passwd looks very similar to the examples in
/usr/doc/Cygwin/login.README and /usr/doc/Cygwin/openssh-3.0.1p1-2.README.
My CYGWIN is set to 'ntsec'. I'm using all the latest packages as of
the writing of this e-mail. I've been at this for about a day now.
Here are all the details.
As you can see, sshd is running, and it does accept connections:
PID PPID PGID WINPID TTY UID STIME COMMAND
1392 1 1392 1392 ? 18 15:07:57 /usr/sbin/sshd
Here is my entry in /etc/passwds, somewhat censored:
Now, my UID is 18 so that I could get cron working
although I have tried all sorts of numbers in there, including the
default one that mkpasswd generated.
The relevent bits from my cygcheck -s are:
CYGWIN = `ntsec'

Now, I am an "Administrator" on this machine... is that "good enough"?
(I'm totally clueless about Win NT/2K 'security'...)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
