Re: .rhosts on W2K w/o ntsec


Use "cygstart docFile" instead of "cmd /c docFile" Cygstart doesn't require the execute bit on the document file as "cmd /c" does.

I don't know how cygstart works internally, but I imagine it looks up the association and launches the appropriate application without regard for the execute bits on the document file being opened.

I just did some tests with CYGWIN=ntsec and it seems as if it's better than it used to be a year ago or so. The only thing that doesn't work is typing something like "cmd /c xxx.doc" to start the according application automatically if the according file is not executable but I can write a little script that looks into /proc/registry and figures out how to open a file of a given type.

I'll give it a shot, convert all my files to NT security and see how it goes. Thanks again.
