During the installation of Hadoop I am trying to setup CYGWIN and ssh. Installed and ssh also started successfully and setup authorization key as instructed HERE but When I try to connect to the localhost using ssh it says..

$ ssh -v localhost

After lots of googling I tried ssh -v cyg_server@localhost but it promt for password which I don't know..

$ ssh -v cyg_Server@localhost

Can someone please help me to establish a successful authenticated ssh connection with localhost.. Either by password or by creating another user or skipping authentication step.. It would be great to me! Thanks.

Was going to rephrase your title to question, but after reading the body, I'm confused as to what you're asking. Sounds like "Why can't I log into an SSH instance on Cygwin?" but the details befudddle me. –  killermist May 4 '13 at 16:16

The cyg_server user is not intended for direct use.

Check your /etc/hosts file for correctness, check that it explicitly resolves localhost to 127.0.0.1.

If you don't need IPv6, deactivate it.

you mean hosts.allow? M pasting the content of file here.. ALL : localhost 127.0.0.1/32 [::1]/128 [::ffff:127.0.0.1]/128 : allow ALL : PARANOID : deny sshd: ALL : allow –  manurajhada May 2 '13 at 5:57
    
Thanks for your consideration, Please let me know what change I need to do here. –  manurajhada May 2 '13 at 5:58

I meant /etc/hosts. The log you provided shows a connection being closed by ::1 (IPv6 localhost), I'm suggesting to use IPv4 instead. –  dawud May 2 '13 at 7:28
    
Okay, And how to do that (use IPv4 instead of IPv6) ? –  manurajhada May 2 '13 at 8:46
    
Check your interface configuration and deactivate IPv6. Also, ensure you are using IPv4 when resolving localhost (ping it, for example) –  dawud May 4 '13 at 11:01

Here are some possibilities to try :

  1. Try substituting 127.0.0.1 for localhost.
  2. Verify that the cyg_server user account has a valid home directory (create /home/cyg_server if required) and its shell is /bin/bash.
  3. Uninstall Cygwin completely, clean up its directories and environment variables, and reinstall. The password to use is the one you provide while configuring Cygwin.
  4. Try using your normal account instead of cyg_server that is suggested by the Cygwin installation.

I don't understand why your post is tagged "linux" when you are using Cygwin - it should in this case be "windows". In this case, have a look at this article : Running hadoop in Windows.
