Re: 1.5.5: sshd problem

Thanks for the extra tips, Igor. Do any of these results look strange to you?

That's the default mode Windows gives it.  This should work, but somehow
doesn't...  Can sshd get to all the necessary files and directories?  Look
at the permissions on /etc and the files in it, as well as /bin.

I tried an ls -l /etc and found

-rwxr-xr-x    1 SYSTEM   None         1159 Nov 13 19:02 ssh_config
-rw-------    1 SYSTEM   None          668 Nov 13 19:02 ssh_host_dsa_key
-rw-r--r--    1 SYSTEM   None          599 Nov 13 19:02
-rw-------    1 SYSTEM   None          524 Nov 13 19:02 ssh_host_key

-rw-r--r--    1 SYSTEM   None         2427 Nov 13 19:03 sshd_config

That looks OK I thought... or is it? Does 'SYSTEM' need to be able to read those files, or does 'sshd'?

I also had a look at /etc/bin and it's all owned by john.Users, for example

-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       19456 Feb 20  2002 split.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       68608 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-add.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       57856 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-agent.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       17333 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-host-config
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       75776 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-keygen.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users      130048 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-keyscan.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users        6266 Nov  6 02:47 ssh-user-config
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users      223232 Nov  6 02:47 ssh.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       18944 Sep 21 06:32 ssp.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       87552 Aug 26  2002 states.exe
-rwxrwxrwx    1 john     Users       23552 Sep 21 06:32 strace.exe

That could be a problem perhaps? Should the 'Users' group contain 'sshd' or is access for sshd to the /bin executables handled somehow else?

Ok, looks like all your mounts are system mounts, unless you simply don't
have the permission to read the registry keys for the SYSTEM user...

That seems strange. My home computer has a couple of mounts when I run that command, but this system has none. However, it works fine locally (compiling, listing files, /cygdrive/c, etc). I haven't ever tinkered with the mounts, so I wonder how that comes to be... Couldn't be related to mingw/msys could it?
