I installed cygwin/sshd without good results. I removed the c:\cygwin directory to reinstall. I removed the sshd Administrator user by hand.
I reinstalled the cygwin again, then run the 'ssh-host-config -y'. Strangely, it doesn't ask anything about making a new user. And the procedure is really short.
$ ssh-host-config -y * Query: Overwrite existing /etc/ssh_config file? (yes/no) yes Info: Creating default /etc/ssh_config file Query: Overwrite existing /etc/sshd_config file? (yes/no) yes Info: Creating default /etc/sshd_config file Info: Privilege separation is set to yes by default since OpenSSH 3.3. Info: However, this requires a non-privileged account called 'sshd'. Info: For more info on privilege separation read /usr/share/doc/openssh ME.privsep. * Query: Should privilege separation be used? (yes/no) yes *** Info: Updating /etc/sshd_config file
*** Info: Host configuration finished. Have fun!
When I ran 'cygrunsrv -S sshd', I get an error. "Win 32 error 1069: The service did not start due to logon failure". It's reasonable message, as I deleted the sshd as a user, and the reinstall procedure did nothing for that again.
I see I got something wrong with the uninstallation.
Q: How can I uninstall the sshd related thing perfectly so that I can reinstall it again?
