Hi, I'm a newbie.

I kept receiving "Error skipping startup message" everytime try to connect. I followed the instruction on openssh website to change the remote directory (/)and Shell to "\ssh\sh" (w/o quotation) but still fail. Please help. Million thanks.

You have wrong configured permissions. I remember that I had same problem. There is some file such as 'readme'??? in the instalation package, which explains what to do.

In order to solve the problem with "setgid", you need to make sure that you have added all of your domain groups and local groups to the etc/group file in your Win2K OpenSSH installation.

mkgroup -l >> ..\etc\group (local groups)
mkgroup -d >> ..\etc\group (domain groups)

You need to edit the file afterwards and remove and duplicate entries.

Firstly thanks for the great piece of software!

I got the same error as the original poster. However I checked my groups, and there are only unique groups there. I only imported local groups as I am on a workgroup, not a domain. Also, my username gid in passwd matched up with a group gid.

I tried logging in with some other SSH/SFTP capable packages to the Win2k sshd and they worked fine. It appears that the server is working fine. The two sample packages were Putty and ssh on RedHat 8.0.

The error that WinSCP2 comes up with is 'Error skipping startup message' and in a smaller box 'Can't detect command return code' Have you any more suggestions? How can I provide more information for you?

The server was OpenSSH 3.5p1-3 on W2k.

I have almost the same Problem. Habe a Linux Server wit 3.6.1p1 Openssh installed and openssl 0.9 installed. I can connect with SSH1 but not with SSH2 . Tried another program SSH2Pro as a client, and this worked. But I prefer your SW as it is great (FTP like and Freeware)

Below is my log file for Winscp2.20 ..(by the way I am using the Winscp with my Linux and SSH1. Working Perfect. Thanks for your great Freeware .)

Question I too have this problem with both client and server on W2K Pro. What was the solution? I've tried all combinations of mkpasswd and mkgroup.

Are you sure that privatejob.PPK key is registered as authorized SSH2 key on your server?
