    Hi,

    I am trying to setup OpenSSH on XP and near the end I am getting kind of lost. I will post the tutorial and what I need help with below.


    Tutorial: http://pigtail.net/LRP/printsrv/cygwin-sshd.html


    8) important Pop a cygwin gwindow, harmonize Windows user information with cygwin, otherwise they cannot login
    mkpasswd -cl > /etc/passwd
    mkgroup --local > /etc/group

    If your XP logs on to a domain, you most likely have to manually edit /etc/group. See this page.

    If your XP logs on to a domain, you may want to edit /etc/passwd to replace /home/username by //unc_server/path_to_home
    (thanks to Geoff Thomas)

    mkpasswd creates a password file from Windows' user list, click here for more details.
    mkgroup creates a group file from Windows' user list, click here for more details.
    Thanks to John Skiggn of Cingular Wireless in Redmond, Washington for his tweak on domain user /etc/group

    What was the last step on the tutorial that you did? Also, is the PC you're using in a domain?
