Very strange.

I went back to using the special user I created with the correct user rights
(as outlined in the readme).  The user is IUSR_SSHD

$ ls -l
total 32
-rwxrwxrwx   1 544      None          567 Nov 10 15:21 group
drwxrwxrwx   2 544      None         4096 Nov 12 00:24 old

drwxrwxrwx   2 544      None            0 Nov 10 15:21 postinstall
-rwxrwxrwx   1 544      None          471 Nov 10 15:21 profile

-rw-------   1 iusr_ssh None         1035 Nov 12 00:25 sshd_config

The 'd' is cut off but it is the owner of the sshd files.



I logged in to the console *AS* IUSR_SSHD and attempted to run the sshd
binary.

It runs FINE.   I could login, it worked.

If I try to run it as a service under SRVANY, it just refuses to work and does
not write any type of debug output.   (The sshd.exe does appear in task
manager for an instant, however.)


I've been using Windows NT for a long time and this is pretty weird.
