SFTP error 128

- Subject: SFTP error 128
I have a Windows 2003 SBS server.
I have set up cygwin SSHD so I can connect to it
I can SSH and SFTP to the machine successfully using
the Administrator account.
I want to set up a couple Domain Users to be able
to SFTP files up to the server.
The users are in Active Directory so I first changed
the security policy to allow users to log on locally.
I then created the password and group files using
these commands from the Cygwin shell using the
mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group
Next, I logged in as one of the users, ran the cygwin
shell and ran ssh-user-config
Now, from remote, I can ssh to the machine using the
domain user's account.
But, when I try top SFTP, I get error 128.
According to something I read on the Internet, this means
the domain user cannot execute the SFTP subsystem.
I set permissions of read and execute for Domain Users
on the entire C:\Cygwin heirarchy to no avail.
Any ideas what went wrong?
