Hi Antonio, I have had similar problems trying to run sshd on Windows
2003 (using cygrunsrv). (What OS version are you using?) I went through
many troubleshooting tasks involving policies, permissions, etc.
Ultimately, I am able to workaround the issue through the use of
Windows' "runas" command. I Specify "Runas /user:domain\serviceaccount
'c:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -...' ...sshd...". Only problem is that the
sshd process seems to die if I logoff even though it's a background task
running under another context.
Either way, if you solve the problem, I would like to try the solution
against our situation.
