yes, ok. As said i had trouble with setting openssh up. I installed it (all default) and was told i had to set up the file /etc/passwd.
Two sets of commands were mentioned:
mkgroup -l >> ..\etc\group (local groups)
mkgroup -d >> ..\etc\group (domain groups)
mkpasswd -l [-u <username>] >> ..\etc\passwd (local users)
mkpasswd -d [-u <username>] >> ..\etc\passwd (domain users)
so i ran:
mkgroup -l >> /etc/group
mkpasswd -l -u jalu >> /etc/passwd
error 5; access is denied
I dont know if the two commands are right and how to access the windows-power-shell with admin-rights.
@dyasni: you might be right that it can be a problem with7, i could try with XP, but i guess first i gotta check how to run the mentioned commands, else i might run into similar problems ( ?).
If anyone knows how to do it, thanks a lot.
