OpenSSH on Windows XP SP2 problems
Fri Jul 20 15:24:00 GMT 2007
I'm about at wits end on this one I can't seem to figure out what's
I've had the openssh server running on the same version of windows
(Windows XP Pro SP2 fully patched) for quite some time.
The first time I installed it using the instructions at http://
pigtail.net/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-sshd.html which worked beautifully.
This time however, I'm having issues. After following the
instructions I was first presented with issues dealing with the
privilege separation feature.
I've got those worked out and now have a more serious trouble that
I'm not sure where to proceed from here.
Now, when I try to start the sshd daemon (using debug mode) I get the
debug1: sshd version OpenSSH_4.6p1
debug1: read PEM private key done: type RSA
debug1: private host key: #0 type 1 RSA
debug1: read PEM private key done: type DSA
debug1: private host key: #1 type 2 DSA
debug1: Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0.
Bind to port 22 on 0.0.0.0 failed: Bad address.
Cannot bind any address.
I've tried explicitly adding my IP address with the ListenAddress
directive in the /etc/sshd_config file. I've tried altering the port
number to a non-privileged port.
I can't seem to get anything to work. I'm running the latest version
of cygwin from cygwin.com.
I did download another project OpenSSH for windows, which seems to be
based off cygwin. It used an older version of openssh as well as the
cygwin DLL, I believe, as they didn't really like having each other
installed at the same time. However, the OpenSSH for windows worked
as far as getting the service to load and accept connections. So I'm
not sure where the root cause of the problem lies in this case. Is
it a bug in this version of OpenSSH (doubtful because I've been
running a similar or same version for months before I reloaded)? Is
it an OS permissions problem (not sure, as I'm a UNIX geek and don't
know windows internals very well)? Is it a cygwin DLL bug(I'd expect
to have found more information on this, if that were the case)?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
