Can anybody help?
I'll have to test this, but as a start, can you try to setup
cyg_server as a domain account? See
I know this is a contradictory report but logging in (pubkey) with my domain
user account and local cyg_server actually works fine. I know. I'm
surprised too. ;-) This is W7 Enterprise and Cygwin 64-bit.
Is your domain account an admin or a non-admin account?
It is a member of local Administrators.
Today I confused myself a lot by trying it (I'm using a domain cyg_server
account for years so it was a bit of hacking) and I was able to login
with a domain admin account but not with a normal domain account.
That's with a local cyg_server running the service?
I didn't manage to debug this further. However, what I never encounter is
a "chown(/dev/ptyX,...) Permission denied" message.
Yeah, me neither. That's... special. ;-)
