I have had Cygwin installed on this computer for over three years and
have used ssh reguarly without any problems until this recent upgrade.
Also, I can copy ssh.exe to my home directory and for some strange
reason this seems to work. I have searched all over for an answer to
this problem with no avail.
Any help appreciated
It's unlikely to be something this simple, but it's always worth
checking the simple stuff.
Thinking that the firewall might be an issue, I tried disabling it, but
with no luck.
The one peculiar behavior I see here is that this only seems to happen
whenever the files reside in /usr/bin. If I make a copy of them and put
them into my home dir the problem goes away.
Additionally, if I make a copy of the files, and let them REMAIN in the
/usr/bin dir, the problem still exists.
Some additional notes:
#1 - Copying the program to a different name under the SAME directory
(/usr/bin) does not cause the problem to go away, creating symlinks
does not help either. This means the problem is somehow related to
something specific to the attributes of /usr/bin itself.
#2 - Considering the three programs found (ssh, ftp, telnet), there is a
high probability that the root cause is related to how the "socket" or
related api cmds are being invoked or differences in how it is being
called when the application resides in the home directory versusus /usr/bin.
#3 - I have yet to find a complete list, but I am betting that this
behavior will exist on all applications trying to open a priviledged port.
