SSHD install problem
Tue Jul 31 19:21:00 GMT 2007
Hello, after installing the very latest version of cygwin and running
the sshd install script, I am having problems getting the ssh daemon to
Overwrite existing /etc/ssh_config file? (yes/no) yes
Generating /etc/ssh_config file
Overwrite existing /etc/sshd_config file? (yes/no) yes
Privilege separation is set to yes by default since OpenSSH 3.3.
However, this requires a non-privileged account called 'sshd'.
For more info on privilege separation
Should privilege separation be used? (yes/no) yes
Warning: The following function requires administrator privileges!
Should this script create a local user 'sshd' on this machine? (yes/no)
Generating /etc/sshd_config file
Host configuration finished. Have fun!
$ net start sshd
The CYGWIN sshd service is starting.
The CYGWIN sshd service could not be started.
The service did not report an error.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3534.
$ telnet localhost 22
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
-.-.-.-.-.-.- contents of /var/log/sshd.log
/var/empty must be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
How can I resolve this?
Thanks in advance
