So I went to
and I am kind of stuck at 5.4.4 where it recommends
Backup the c:\cygwin\etc\passwd file and then use any editor to open
the file in edit mode. Remove only those entries of the user that you
will use to connect to the host on which you want to install a
Management Agent. Ask the user to make a backup of the
c:\cygwin\etc\passwd file before editing.
I am over my head with this. Which ones do I remove? And then the
next step leaves me even deeper under water.
Waiting for your help. Thanks
