Great... now I have a sourceforge project, and I can''t access it from Windows NT! ( needs a .ssh directory, and you can''t MAKE a directory starting with a . in windows NT ) If anyone has any experience with this, please tell me how to make it work, ''cause there''s no chance of them allowing me a Linux box here at work. Give me one more medicated peaceful moment. ~ (V)^|) |<é!t|-| ~ ERROR: Your beta-version of Life1.0 has expired. Please upgrade to the full version.

I remember when I tried out BASH for DOS, the init file was c:\.bashrc (or something like that). I couldn 't create the file in Windows, so I simply went into the DOS prompt:

C:\>dir > .bashrc

That created a file called .bashrc in C:\. I could then edit it from Notepad.

In Windows98 SE I can type in "mkdir .ssh" (which will make a directory called .ssh) at the DOS prompt. Try going into the dos prompt and type "mkdir .ssh", maybe it'll work in NT too... You can't delete it from the DOS prompt though, you have to use Explorer for that. Let me know if it works.

Nothing wrong with sourceforge, go to a command prompt and use mkdir instead... It''s just some stupid NT filename validation...

My school has Win200, and it does the same thing (strangely enough, I was setting up ssh for Sourceforge also!). I just go to the command prompt and do a mkdir.
