The install worked great. But when I try to create the service:
cygrunsrv -I DenyHosts -p /usr/share/denyhosts/daemon-control -a start -d
DenyHosts -f "DenyHosts 2.6" -y sshd -x /var/run/denyhosts.pid -o
I get this:
cygrunsrv: unknown option --
Also, this does not exist:
Sorry, replied directly before noticing this message.
The second problem is caused by a step I forgot, which is documented in
the installation instructions /usr/share/denyhosts/README.txt: you have
to copy daemon-control-dist to the script used and edit (if necessary)
the 3 lines about location of things.
The first problem is probably caused by the second one. Let me know if
it's still a problem and I'll check further.
