New SSHD setup on cygwin (Can't access network folders).

new install of cygwin on XP. Installed and configured ssh with the following commands;

mkpasswd -l -d > /etc/passwd
mkgroup -l -d > /etc/group

ssh-host-config (yes, yes, yes, Cygwin= ntsec tty)

The problem is, when I log in using ssh -l myname localhost, I can access my local hard drive folders, by I loose allot of my network folders (not all, just some).


Mike@Mybox /
$ cd //apples/oranges

Mike@Mybox //apples/oranges
$ ls


Mike@Mybox //apples/oranges
$ ssh -l Mike localhost
enter password = ****

Mike@Mybox /
$ cd //apples/oranges

Mike@Mybox //apples/oranges
$ ls

ls: Reading Directory .: Permission Denied

Now, a co-worker has a true linux box working and he can log in to his server, browse all network folders, but when he logs into my [cygwin] box, he experiences the same undesired problem.

Any idea?
