Um, could elaborate? I mean do I just create a user called
cyg_server, and that makes it sshd happy? Or how is user
separation different than having root own the directory?
Also, is it the same separation mentioned in this
/etc/sshd_config line 105: Deprecated option UsePrivilegeSeparation
/var/empty must be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
...or has the option been renamed? FWIW -- this *used* to work on my
machine until the upgrade.
usage: ssh-host-config [OPTION]...
--debug -d Enable shell's debug output.
--yes -y Answer all questions with "yes" automatically.
--no -n Answer all questions with "no" automatically.
--cygwin -c <options> Use "options" as value for CYGWIN
--name -N <name> sshd windows service name.
--port -p <n> sshd listens on port n.
--user -u <account> privileged user for service, default
--pwd -w <passwd> Use "pwd" as password for privileged user.
--privileged On Windows XP, require privileged user
instead of LocalSystem for sshd service.
long time I am not reconfiguring the sshd server, but
ssh-host-config should propose by default the user separation
and propose the creation of cyg_server user for that scope.
