Re: can't run devenv through sshd

Thanks Dave. I tried the same thing on XP and it works. So it's
definitely something wrong with 2003 server, either with 2003 server
itself or SSHD configuration. I am not trying to get GUI working. The
idea is basically to be able to run remote build on windows (devenv)
from Linux box and through SSH. I would expect something like "ssh
derek@mywindows-pc" to work on windows 2003 server.

I checked the opensshd service on my 2003 server. it seems the Log On
property needs some clarification here. I set it to This account:
./sshd_server. the sshd_server is a windows local account. While i
tried to change this setting to Local User. Regardless what i put in
there, the service won't start. Just wonder what should be the right
setting for Log On.
