Re: Permissions on .ssh/id_rsa

How does one set permissions on id_rsa in such a way as to make ssh happy? Nothing I have done has made chmod 700 id_rsa actually work.

chmod 600 has always worked fine for me.

Pretty annoying stuff...

We will probably need more information: Output of "cygcheck -svr" and

See cygcheck.log, attached.

"ls -ld / /home ~ ~/.ssh ~/.ssh/id_rsa" would be a good start.

It appears as if your home directory is on the H drive and this is mounted from another system. Thus CYGWIN=ntsec does not apply because this is a share mounted using SMB. Thus, as I said before, you need to set CYGWIN=smbntsec and try again.
