I have configured a SSHD on a NT4.0 member server running SP6. I've
sshd to start via SRVANY. I can see the service has started and have
that I can at least attempt a connection via SecureCRT on my client machine.
prompted to accept the keys however connection fails at the password stage.
receive the message "Password Authentication failed.
I have SSHD running against the system account. I do have a service account
SSHD however I wanted to get it working in a fairly vanilla environment
As I'm running SSHD on a non-domain controller I'd like to use the local
accounts for user authentication. I thought this was controlled via the
file. However when I launch cygwin and then login and attempt to login with
username and password I've set login fails.
I have also poured over the documentation and do not understand where I
set the netsec variable. Please tell me what file this variable needs to
Any help would be much appreciated. Please reply to this
