- Subject: cygwin installation troubles
Hi, I'm having some trouble installing cygwin openssh.
I'm on windows vista ultimate, and I'm trying to follow the directions given in "Cygwin\...release\openssh\openssh-4.7p1-2\usr\share\doc\Cygwin\openssh"
More specifically, I don't know exactly what I should choose when running 'ssh-host-config' and 'ssh-user-config'.
Ie, do I want to install sshd? What is sshd? Do I want privilege separation?
This readme seems to assume that I know exactly what I want to do, and I don't. Is there a more comprehensive readme or perhaps can you give me a brief walkthrough the installation process?
What I do know is that I want to set up an ssh server on my windows vista machine so that when I'm on a linux, I can just go into the terminal, and type in "ssh <insert ip address here>" and then look around, edit files, and transfer files using scp just as if I was connecting to another linux machine.
any help here would be greatly appreciated :-D
thank you so much
