oystercatcher Posted June 25, 2009 Share Posted June 25, 2009 (edited) I am rather surprised that I was able to install cygwin and the sshdservice. it is win 7 build 7201. I did have to open the cygwinshell with run as administrator and not specific to win7the scripts to setup sshd fail unless some specific file permissionsare in place.For the service to run a priviledged user has to be created andafter rebooting I noticed an icon for that username on the loginscreen so I will have to look into how to hide that user icon.I decided to update this topic as several changes have beenmade to get sshd working. Initially when I thought it wasworking I only tried to logon from a cygwin shell on the samemachine and I was able to connect. After I posted thoughI realized to my embarassment that I was not able to logonfrom another machine on the same subnet. It now seems!that by stopping the windows firewall and software protectionI can logon remotely.this error is from the software protection servicesshd: PID 944: fatal: fork of unprivileged child failedthis error is from the firewallsshd: PID 1384: error: fork: Resource temporarily unavailableI also noticed that if I start either or both services that somethinggets screwed up and I have to reboot with both services not started.Now my mea culpa is that I don't know anything about win7 yethaving come from winxp. So I will be reading anything I can findto correct the problem with the firewall and software protection.Additionally I cant be sure sshd is stable without some morereboots and further testing.7 july 2009 I had some time this morning to continue testing win7and was still having connect problems to sshd, I found this tip http://www.heikkitoivonen.net/blog/2008/11...-and-rebaseall/After running rebaseall, sshd seems to be working consistently, yay...actually this was a showstopper as I use it for client support, alongwith vnc which I will be testing soon.
