Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have followed all the setup process of installing CYGWIN64 and sshd. But I am unable to log into my ssh server either from the same local computer or from a remote terminal.

The following is the last few lines of ssh -v [email protected]. Logging in as cyg_server works, just fine, but I want to log in as regular unprivileged user as well. What might have I missed?

debug1: Next authentication method: password
[email protected]'s password:
