Re: Cygwin sshd key auth doesn't work (seteuid 500: Permission denied) [SOLVED]

and followed the part of "privilege separation". After that, everything worked fine with key auth.

It's always recommended that you stick with the defaults of the configuration scripts unless you have a real good reason not to. Obviously, I'm glad you found the information you needed from any source though I want to clarify for anyone looking in these archives in the future that the above site was not material in solving this problem and any information posted there is not supported by this list. In short, the solution is, use the defaults of ssh-host-config. This will set privilege separation, which is what you want.
