i installed COPSSH version 4.1.0 on 2 Windows 2012 servers. COPSSH (or Openssh SSHD service) runs perfectly fine on the one server but for the love of me does not want to start on the other one.
command line that i use to start = cygrunsrv -S opensshserver and i then get the following error:
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062: This service has not been started
when i try to start the Openssh SSHD service from the Windows Services Console i get the following error:
The Openssh SSHD service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.
i have searched to see whether there is a duplicated cygwin1.dll on the system but there is only one.
i changed the user account under which the Openssh SSHD service runs and also elevated the security access to FULL control on the \ICW folder as well as subfolders. it did not help.
i also changed the cygrunsrv Properties > Compatibility to run as Windows 7 or 8 and that also did not help........
i checked the setup between the 2 servers and they are the same.......what am i missing here?
please help......thanks and regards
