Hello, I've just installed CopSSH 4.0.2 onto a Windows 7 Professional x32 PC. This PC is not a domain member. I have then created a local account called "remote" and have activated this account via the CopSSH control panel. This shows up correctly as "[PCName]\remote" in the list.
However, I simply cannot connect to this account using PuTTY on a second PC (Windows XP Pro x32). It connects to the SSH server fine, prompts for the username and password, but always returns "access denied".
Furthermore, the CopSSH log shows the following:
2011.01.05 12:03:43 - Received disconnect from [IP address]: 13: Unable to authenticate
2011.01.05 12:03:42 - Failed password for invalid user remote from [IP address] port 3810 ssh2
2011.01.05 12:03:40 - Failed password for invalid user remote from [IP address] port 3810 ssh2
2011.01.05 12:03:38 - input_userauth_request: invalid user remote
2011.01.05 12:03:38 - Invalid user remote from [IP address]
I've also tried using "[PCName]\remote" as the username in PuTTY, but this also fails and the event log states:
2011.01.05 12:06:06 - input_userauth_request: invalid user [PCName]\\remote
2011.01.05 12:06:06 - Invalid user [PCName]\\remote from [IP Address]
So, any suggestions as to how I can get PuTTY and CopSSH to play nicely together? Thanks in advance!
