Re: Invoker question

Hi All...

I will now answer my own question.

sshd wants (I could hear it talk to me) the -D option to be provided when 
run as a service (SrvAny, Invoker, ...) on WinNT/Win2000. The -D option 
prevents sshd from forking and detaching (which is a good thing in the *nix 
world). Instead, the process stays under the control of the service wrapper 
(SrvAny, Invoker, ...), so it can be stopped and started at will.

I have tested this with SrvAny. I believe it will resolve the problem I had 
with Invoker as well. I will check it tomorrow.
