Hi, I'm new to SSH. I've just installed Cygwin on my Win2000 workstation. My goal is to connect to it from Linux box and copy files from Linux to Win2000. I can connect to my windows box from Linux and browse the directories. But I need to set up and automated file transfer and therefore public and private keys.
I think my set up is not complete/correct.
When I run ssh localhost on my win2k I see a message:
Cannot create directory /cygdrive/h/username: no such file or dir
Well it's looking at h drive and I need it to look at c drive. Where do I change that? Also, the authorized_keys file should reside in my home directory, will that be /cygdirve/c/username/.ssh?
It also says that user name or group hasn't been setup correctly. What should I do to set it all up?
Thanks in advance.
