Hello,

I'm using "FreeSSHD 1.0.10" on a W2K3 server.

After connecting, with plink, to this server (with key authentication), everything seems to be OK, but a "whoami" command indicate "nt authoritysystem" ... not the account I've used to establish connection !

Is it possible to use another account for a secured connection ?

Thanks a lot.

Since you're not using NT authentication, freeSSHd uses credentials that it runs on.

If you're running it as a system service, you can always create an account that freeSSHd will use.

Just be sure that you give him these privileges:
"Act as part of the operating system" (SeTcbPrivilege)
"Increase quotas" (SeIncreaseQuotasPrivilege)
"Replace a process-level token" (SeAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege)


Regards

Hi,

I had found this solution ... Just an account, with minimum rights, to run the freesshd service ...

But FreeSSHD is running on an application server used by differents applications. All this applications needs freeshd. Others servers use scripted "psftp" and "plink" commands (putty) to send data and execute commands on this application server !

I don't know how I can do to solve this issue.
