RE: Cygwin on windows2003 Server

Please send all Cygwin related email to and not to me
personally.  Thanks.

Also, please do not include plain text email addresses in the body of your
messages.  This is fruit for spam harvesters.

You insist on repeating only these few vague details over and over again.
You have never attached cygcheck output, or fomulated a problem report in
the manner requested by even after you
have been asked to do so by several people (Hint: Your subject line
should probably read something like "remsh: Permission Denied on Windows
2003".  As such, I don't know why I am still helping you, but...

Let me say this as clear as I know how.  I am not an expert in
this area, so this will be the end of my help to you.  If I give
misleading information, I hope some other kind soul will correct me.  If
you still have problems, please contact the list and provide all the
requested information.  Or, do not expect any further help.

Windows 2003 changed the default permissions given to the the local SYSTEM
account for security reasons.  In fact, some permissions necessary to
switch users are no longer allowed to be given to that account.  As
such, Cygwin services that switch users and used to run under that
account like inetd/cron/etc. do not work out of the box like they did on
previous OSes.

Ssh already has a work around using the ssh-host-config script.  The
details of which have been applied to cron, and are given in the message
URL I quoted below.  These solutions are currently being integrated into
the stock Cygwin release.

That said, if you apply the wisdom of the work around for cron (derived
for the one for sshd) to inetd, all should be well.  If you have tried
this and encountered problems, please describe *exactly* what you tried
and what happened, step by step.  If not, I can only assume that you want
someone else to solve your problem for you.  If that is the case, you
need to just sit and wait patiently.

I expected you would have gleamed this information by reading the messages
in that thread, and doing additional archive searches based on what you
learned.  Since you have not been able to gleam anything from the Cygwin
problems page, I guess I should not have expected that.

Good luck.
