Re: Problems Starting sshd as a service through CYGWIN
Whoops, ignore the last email, I accidentally must have hit a send
hotkey, because I fired it off before I had finished typing. Sorry.
I have changed a lot, so I'll probably go back and start fresh one more
time. The first time I ran sshd, I did not run it from a system-owned
shell; I ran it as Administrator, so perhaps that has something to do
with my problem. I'll give it another try. Thanks for the feedback.

You sure you're not just suffering from some form of
Of some concern is the fact that you have another installation of some
like tools including, apparently, 'ssh'. I don't see these interfering
based on the information you sent but....
Also, your attempts to research and solve this problem are admirable and
commendable but you may have taken it a little too far. You mentioned
you can 'sshd' from the command line, though you don't mention the
are when you run it that way. If you didn't do this from a SYSTEM-owned
shell the first time you tried it, you may very well have prohibited
yourself from getting this to work for you as a service easily. You may
want to consider wiping your installation again and reinstalling. The
problem is that permissions on some files get set specifically for the
user running of 'sshd' and running it as another user isn't an
it is possible to run around to all the needed files/directories and
the permissions back to what's needed but that's allot of work and is
error prone. Also, given the changes you've tried so far relative to
granting/restricting certain permissions, this compounds the problem.
So there are a few things to mull over. ;-)
