error-message copssh on german XP

I have installed the copssh on a german Windows XP and the Server is working. I can login as Administrator.
If it want to add a local user i get a error-message. I think it hase something to to with the german installation. Do anybody have a solution for this?

You may establish an ssh connection to this machine now.

Re: error-message copssh on german XP

This is a kind of bug :-) I use listacc tool to get localized names of common groups and users. Some users reported that listacc didn't work as expected. It seems that you're troubled by the same issue.

That will be fixed with the next release. In the meantime, You can use the following workaround:

  1. Find out the name of Administrators group in your localized OS. Command net localgroup may help.
  2. Update activate-user.sh:

    LISTACC_ADMGROUP=localized name for Administrators group
    # listacc | sed "s/SET//" > /tmp/_tmp1
    # source /tmp/_tmp1
    # rm -f /tmp/_tmp1
