Thanks again for your input.
Without you it would not be possible to solve my problem.
The Solution for running denyhosts under Cygwin as a Service including your
cygrunsrv -I DenyHosts -p /usr/share/denyhosts/daemon-control -a start -d
DenyHosts -f "DenyHosts 2.6" -y sshd -x /var/run/denyhosts.pid -o
To set the owner to SYSTEM:Administrators for the denyhosts directory
In the dir /usr/share
chown -R SYSTEM:Administrators denyhosts
This is needed because if you run the service denyhosts under the SYSTEM
Account it will start as the User SYSTEM but this user is not allowed to run
I found out this by poking around with User rights and User owner.
A good trick is to install it in the rc.local, install init as System
service and then redirect the output to a file.
By magic the file has also the owner SYSTEM:Administrators
Thanks again for being patient with me.
