- Subject: Problems using sshd as a service
I am trying to get sshd to run as a service on my W2K SP2 machine. I have
got sshd set up properly (as far as I know), with all the keys and files it
needs. If I start a cygwin bash shell and type "/usr/sbin/sshd", then the
server starts fine and issues no errors or warnings. From another PC on the
network, I can ssh in to this PC. In other words, sshd is working
However, when I install it as a service with
cygrunsrv -I sshd -p /usr/sbin/sshd
and then try to start the service, either with cygrunsrv or from the Control
Panel, I get:
cygrunsrv -S sshd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062:
The service has not been started.
Looking with taskmanager, however, I see that sshd has been started fine - I
have no problem logging into it. So the sshd server has been started, even
though Windows does not know it. This leads to complaints during startup,
and I can't use "net start" and "net stop" but must kill sshd manually if
Cygwin1.dll version 1.3.12 of 06/07/2002.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.
