I don't know that I need anything different, but I've had trouble with
sshd ever since Vista.  I'm still nailing down the details for a proper
trouble report, but I'm currently wrestling with a Win 7 laptop and have
only gotten as far as running as my privileged "root" account -- which
means I can only log in as root rather than switching.  I miss the very
explicit step-by-step third-party documentation that has gone dark :-(

More to come when, again, I can put together a coherent account, but I'd
sure love to see some advice on the matter!

don't have the time or energy to captcha or register or whatever to be
able to send you email.
