Temperature of Hell drops a few degrees – Microsoft emits SSH-for-Windows source code


Re: Cygwin SSH server

"1) You don't need to install all the cygwin stuff (and maintain it yourself)"

Well, but Cygwin is always the first thing I install on any Windows machine I use. Ok, the second one - I furst install Firefox and then use it to download the Cygwin setup utility. BTW, is there some native Windows application akin to the 'screen' terminal multiplexer?

"3) It should be better integrated with Windows security and accounting - i.e. in many situations you may wanto to know from Windows logs who connected and when, and manage permission through active directory."

Not my use case, really. But just out of curiosity - can Cygwin be set up for LDAP authentication against AD. Anyone here knows? It can be done statically with mkpasswd but it would certainly be better to be always up to date with AD.
