I installed CopSSH Server 3.1.4 on Windows XP SP3, created a user named "rsync" for ssh'ing, activated it in CopSSH.
Then I copied the generated private key to the client. The client is CwrSync 4.1.0. I'd like to run rsync over ssh. First, I try to establish SSH connection to my server by executing: "ssh -i rsync.key firstname.lastname@example.org -T".
Then I enter my passphrase for key, and then I get the response: "Connection closed by 192.168.1.3".
In the server's event log, I see the following error: "sshd: PID 592: fatal: seteuid 1052: Permission denied".
The password-based authentication works fine!
I've looked through FAQ, checked that SvcCOPSSH account has all the needed privileges.
Please help me to diagnose and repair the problem. What should I do, step-by-step?
By the way, when I install Cygwin with OpenSSH, then run 'ssh-host-config' and 'ssh-user-config', everything just works. I copy authorized_keys from CopSSH installation.
Maybe sshd version bundled with CopSSH 3.1.4 is buggy?..
I can duplicate your scenario in my test lab successfully. Do you use a localized version of Windows ? Please check a related FAQ
Yes, renaming Administrators and Users groups to english helped, thanks a lot.
