I installed cygwin according to instructions on the cygwin site to
install sshd on a windows XP machine (Win2).
Win2 is a member of a domain MyDomain.
I login via ssh to Win2 as MyDomain\Administrator and try to start
outlook using "cmd /c "OUTLOOK.EXE". I want Outlook to startup on Win2
machine. It doesnt launch properly, I tried the check "Interact with
desktop" in the installed service but no luck.
If i do a "cmd /c "WHOAMI.EXE", it shows
NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM user instead of
MyDomain\Administrator although i logged in as MyDomain\Administrator
and this if the cause of all the trouble.
How do i ensure that the bash shell launched when i ssh to Win2 launches
as usre MyDomain\Administrator
Make sure your '/etc/passwd' and '/etc/group' files contain your user/group
information. See the Users Guide for details if you need help with these
files and mkpasswd/mkgroup. If this is not the problem, make sure you use
