Update: OpenSSH-2.1.1p4-1 for Cygwin 1.1.3
Wed Aug 2 14:21:00 GMT 2000
I want to announce the updated OpenSSH version 2.1.1p4-1.
- Explicitely undefine HAVE_VHANGUP when compiled for Cygwin.
This should allow starting sshd via inetd now.
- Don't check getuid() result when running under Windows 9X.
This should solve problems when running sshd under 9X.
- Eliminate check for uid 0 when writing lastlog. This should
at least eliminate superfluous syslog output.
- ssh-config takes care for $HOME being the root directory
and for creating $HOME/.ssh now.
This port uses all new features of Cygwin 1.1.3 so it's not backward
compatible to older Cygwin versions.
The binary distribution is compiled for being installed under
/usr/local as the previous versions. However, there's a README under
/usr/doc/Cygwin which is the same file as the below mentioned
openssh-2.1.1p4.README in the download URL.
Please read the README!
There's a small script, named
which is intended for users who install OpenSSH for the first time.
It simplifies the first usage by creating the needed key files for
the host and the current user. Just start it after unpacking the
binary tar archive. The script is not part of the source archive.
This version provides SSH version 2 protocol but it's still
experimental so do not rely on complete and correct functionality.
SSH protocol versions 1.3 and 1.5 are still part of that version, so you
shouldn't have problems in communicating with other SSH-1.2.X versions.
You will find the port on
openssh-2.1.1p4-1.tar.gz binary distribution
openssh-2.1.1p4.README README file
openssh-2.1.1p4-1-src.tar.gz sources including Cygwin diffs
Compiling the sources requires the openSSL-0.9.5 port from the same URL.
Please send any request regarding that port to the mailing list
