Tectia

Special Considerations with Windows Servers

If you use public-key authentication to log on to a Windows domain user account on SSH Tectia Server 5.1 or older, you must give your username as DOMAIN\user when attempting logon. On Unix command line, the backslash has to be escaped, for example:

$ sshg3 DOMAIN\\user@win-server

With SSH Tectia Server 5.2 and later, this is not required. When logging on to a machine that runs SSH Tectia Server 5.2 or later, and belongs to a Windows domain, the user account is by default assumed to be a domain account. If you want to log on to a local account instead, you have to specify the machine name as the "domain", for example on Windows command line:

> sshg3 MACHINE\user@machine
