Specs: Windows Server 2003
Hi,

I have found that when I remotely ssh a particular server running windows Server 2003 using Putty, it asks for a username and password. I believe that this is enabled somewhere.

I would like to disable this on the server. How can I do that?

Since windows server doesn't have ssh built into it like a UNIX or Linux box, your controls will be in the ssh software you've installed on the windows box itself, not the Windows OS.

I personally don't understand why you would want to allow people to ssh into a server of any kind without requiring authentication first. This is a major security issue.

I actually want to disable this feature. I have not installed any SSH client but I am running IIS and WING FTP server. Could it be that when I try to log on to the server using Putty, I am actually logging onto IIS or WingFTP?

Thanks

I don't know. It's possible ssh is included in IIS or Wing FTP server, I can't say as I've never used either.

I do know ssh is not included in Windows Server and in order to make ssh possible, you have to install an ssh application on the server itself.
