Dear CopSSH Team,
I installed CopSSH Version 3.1.4 on a new windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit server using the instructions given in the below links
when I try to start the service, I’m getting an error
"The Openssh SSHD service started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.
I'm not sure why the service is not starting. The windows machine is a new one . Any help in this regard would be highly appreciated.
You need to install the installer as administrator (run as administrator). If all you want is a git server for windows, have a look at our gitwin. It has also a free edition.
Yes All I need is to set up a GIT Repository server on Windows and move the code from VSS to GIT. How trustable and efficient is gitwin?
Gitwin is a solution created by us, same as Copssh. Gitwin uses a builtin Copssh for secure communication, and the rest is a plain and complete Git distribution. It should work for your purpose. Have a look at an article (in Russian) which discovered and used Gitwin recently. According to our download statistics, there are lots of Gitwin users out there.
However, in any circumstances, you need to try yourself and see if this is something for you
The article doesnt open. It says " resource not found".
Sorry, it's been corrected now.
I installed CopSSH as an administrator and now when I start the service Im getting the below error.
"Windows Could not start the openssh SSHD service in local computer. Error 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure"
The user account is .\SvcCOPSSH. Am I missing something.Any help is appreciated.
The message is probably related to have the wrong password. Try to change the password. There may also be some limitations imposed by your system.
Thank You. It worked.I was able to start the OpensshSSHD service on Port 22.
However after I install the putty and try to connect using the User Name "Administrator" it gives me an error "Server unexpectedly closed network connection".
I have set up the copssh and putty using the link

I also found from the Event log the below error.

Looks like an issue with user set up. Please let me know how to proceed in this regard.
i'm trying to find in forums to see what is causing this error. Any help from you would be higly appreciated.
Did you activate user Administrator via Copssh user activation wizard ? Apart from that, we provide the free edition as is.
which password need to change and where and how to change
