I'm having issues with setting up Openssh for Windows.  I am using Windows 2003 and downloaded the install file successfully.  When I got to the section of preparing the "mkgroup -l  >> ..\etc\group", i get the command line error of  "the system cannot find the path specified".  I'm probably missing something, or I am supposed to create something that is not listed in the directions, but not sure.

ok.  i figured out the problem.  the one set of directions says to run from the openssh folder.  after looking in the different folders i noticed the mkgroup and passwd were in the bin folder.  i ran the command and from there and it worked.
