Re: groups and permissions...

thankyou! i thought it was something simple.

performance isn't great though... 15kB/s isn't enough for simple ssh?

Hi there guys...

i'm cross posting, and i'm sorry to those of you who also subscribe to
ssh-l. just hoping someone here might be able to lend a hand. thanks.

so, i want to run ssh under cygwin on a win xp
computer. but i am having problems... specifically with groups, at least
that's what i think. You can see that the cygwin is having a problem with
the group system:system.... and also below are the results of things that
might be beneficial. I'm not sure how things are supposed to look in
/etc/passwd and /etc/group so any help would be greatly appreciated.

entropy at localhost's password:
Last login: Sun Mar 23 22:23:41 2003 from localhost
setgid: Invalid argument
Connection to localhost closed.


[Melchior at magi]~:{65}:$ ssh-host-config -y
chown: `system.system': invalid group
Generating /etc/ssh_config file
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 read

[Melchior at magi]~:{58}:$ groups mkgroup

This indicates that you should run mkgroup to create /etc/group: mkgroup -l > /etc/group
