Re: shell under sshd fail to fork child process
> I have installed the latest and greatest cygwin and sshd on a Small
Business Windows Server 2003. Everything works great on the console
and ssh'ing in and out works fine. However once I access the web
server running on the box anyone sshd in will no longer be able to
run anything that creates a child process. All cygwin functionality
from the console still works fine. I can look at the processes and
see srvc sshd and shells all running under SYSTEM.
Not sure what your suggesting with this but for clarification I
should point out that the bash child shells of sshd are not running
as SYSTEM but as who ever logged in. My main point with that is that
from the console it is still easy to see that things look fairly
normal even though those shells tied to sshd can not fork processes.
