- Subject: Cygwin/OpenSSH authentication without applying group policies...
Dear Cygwin community,
we are just having problems with some locations connect over WAN lines
with only little bandwith.
The logon process against a Win2003 AD domain controller takes much time
(>50s). After some analysis we found out that there is much traffic
between the SSH server and the domain controller over ip port 1026 (CAP,
used for applying/downloading the Win2003 group policies).
During a SSH logon it is not necessary to apply all group policies.
Instead it would be OK, if the user would just be authenticated and get
his group memberships.
Is it possible to deactivate applying the group policies during the SSH
logon process or to reconfigure the SSH service so that we can use LDAP
authentication instead of standard Win2003 authentication.
Thanks in advance for some hints and
