Putty crashes trying to establish SSH session with Cygwin
Tue Oct 16 17:18:00 GMT 2007
I am trying to set up SSH using CYGWIN on a windows standard 2003
server. I have done all the steps like generatig keys,placing them in
appropriate location etc and now when i try to connect to the server
using PuTTy, it prompts me for this:
Using Username "XXXX"
Authenticatating with public key "rsa-key-xxxxxxx"
Passphrase for key"rsa-key-xxxxxx"
And then when I enter the keyphrase,it throws this exception:
Putty Fatal Error:
Server sent disconnect message type2 ( protocol error ) :
"fork failed: Resource temporarily unavailable"
I checked the server logs, and see this:
7 [main] sshd 2164 E:\cygwin\usr\sbin\sshd.exe: *** fatal error
- could not load ws2_32, Win32 error 126
33 [main] sshd 2076 fork: child 2164 - died waiting for dll
loading, errno 11
The Event logs get corrupted and show this - " Event logs are corrupted"
I researched a lot,and only thread I could find that experienced the
exact same problem was this:
[Sorry for that URL, I guess my email is boucing back for mime/type
due to that URL]
But unfortunately, no solution has been mentioned for the problem.
I have administrative controls over that server,so access should not
be a problem...i even tried to change the permissions to "777" for
that dll file and also tried to ran "ssh-host-config" ... but nothing
I would appreciate if someone can help me or give me any pointers or
give me any alternatives as to how to setup SSH on windows 2003
