Are you using SSH password authentication or SSH public key authentication? cygwin's openssh server has a bug whereby if you use public key authentication, the user is the user's that's running the sshd daemon rather than the remote user. The cygwin folks claim it's due to a problem with NT, (funny how that's always the fall-back position for programmers) but it's actually a problem with their understanding of NT. They need to look at the CVSNT 126.96.36.199 pserver code. If you really have to use public key authentication, use VanDyke's vshell. http://vandyke.com "Ulrich Jakobus" <jakomail at emss.co.za> wrote in message news:20011206062305.84F06D3EF at mail.emss.co.za... > Hi, > > I am using CVSNT 188.8.131.52 Build 41 (the latest stable) as > CVS server on Win2k with several CVS clients on Linux/HP/Sun > and other Windows machines. > > The protocal is :ext: with CVS_RSH=ssh, using sshd from Cygwin > as SSH Server on the Win2k box. > > Everything works fine, except that all user names in the CVS > log files appear to be SYSTEM instead of the real username, > i.e. I get > date 2001.12.06.06.14.02; author SYSTEM; state Exp; > instead of > date 2001.12.06.06.14.02; author jakobus; state Exp; > > sshd has been installed as service under the system account, but > of course e.g. "ssh cvs_server whoami" correctly reports "jakobus" > and not "SYSTEM", and also I see that CVS calls the external > program ssh with the command line argument "-l jakobus".
