Hello, I have just installed the ssh/sshd software made available from
http://gnu-win32.paranoia.ru/ , but I have not been able to get it to
work. I changed my mounts to binary, set up the sshd config files, and
started sshd. I have Sergey's coolview DLL installed. I would like to
get this working so I can use it with CVS.
When I run ssh, I get the message "You have no controlling tty and no
DISPLAY. Cannot read passphrase." Do I need some special environment
variables set to run this? I've also tried starting with the -t
command, but this has the same effect.
I am running ssh from a regular command prompt (not bash or tcsh). Even
if I run under bash I get the same error message. I have run ssh-keygen
to create my key in my .ssh directory.
I started sshd with the -d command to get debugging info. After sshd
starts up with this...
debug: sshd version 1.2.21 
debug: Initializing random number generator; seed file
log: Server listening on port 22.
log: Generating 768 bit RSA key.
Generating p: ..........++ (distance 168)
Generating q: ................++ (distance 184)
Computing the keys...
Testing the keys...
Key generation complete.
log: RSA key generation complete.
... and I run ssh I get this output from sshd...
debug: Server will not fork when running in debugging mode.
log: Connection from 126.96.36.199 port 3539
debug: Client protocol version 1.5; client software version 1.2.21
debug: Sent 768 bit public key and 1024 bit host key.
debug: Encryption type: idea
debug: Received session key; encryption turned on.
debug: Attempting authentication for dyoung.
log: Rsa authentication refused for dyoung: bad modes for /derek
debug: RSA authentication for dyoung failed.
fatal: Connection closed by remote host.
debug: Calling cleanup 0x40e9e4(0x0)
I don't know what "bad modes for /derek" means (/derek is my home
directory). Do I need some special permissions on this directory? This
directory is listed in my /etc/passwd file as well. sshd and ssh were
started as the same user, and I'm also trying to login with this user
Have I missed something?
thanks for any help,
