Run “cygwin setup.exe”
Under Net, include OpenSSH
Start the cygwin shell
>cd /d C:\cygwin
Copying skeleton files.
These files are for the user to personalise
their cygwin experience.
These will never be overwritten.
`./.bashrc' -> `/home/Administrator//.bashrc'
`./.bash_profile' -> `/home/Administrator//.bash_profile'
`./.inputrc' -> `/home/Administrator//.inputrc'
4. Create default ssh host settings
Generating /etc/ssh_config file
Privilege separation is set to yes by default since OpenSSH 3.3.
However, this requires a non-privileged account called 'sshd'.
For more info on privilege separation read /usr/share/doc/openssh/README.privsep
Should privilege separation be used? (yes/no) yes
Warning: The following function requires administrator privileges!
Should this script create a local user 'sshd' on this machine? (yes/no) yes
Generating /etc/sshd_config file
Added ssh to C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\services
Warning: The following functions require administrator privileges!
Do you want to install sshd as service?
(Say "no" if it's already installed as service) (yes/no) yes
Which value should the environment variable CYGWIN have when
sshd starts? It's recommended to set at least "ntsec" to be
able to change user context without password.
Default is "ntsec". CYGWIN=ntsec tty
The service has been installed under LocalSystem account.
To start the service, call `net start sshd' or `cygrunsrv -S sshd'.
Host configuration finished. Have fun!
5. Start the sshd service.
$ net start sshd
The CYGWIN sshd service is starting.
The CYGWIN sshd service was started successfully.
6. Create default user settings. (Basically, the .ssh user directory.)
Shall I create an SSH1 RSA identity file for you? (yes/no) no
Shall I create an SSH2 RSA identity file for you? (yes/no) no
Shall I create an SSH2 DSA identity file for you? (yes/no) no
Configuration finished. Have fun!
