RE: Help me : "ssh localhost" fail

did you actualy start the service ? (try 'cygrunsrv -S sshd' or if you
prefer 'net start sshd' )
although it seems that you removed the service then readded it, so first
re-remove it ('cygrunsrv -R sshd'), then re-run the host config script
('ssh-host-config -y' and answer as appropriate,) just so the parameters to
the service are correct.
Then try and start the service. if that gives an error then send the
contents of /var/log/sshd.log to the list and we'll try and help again.

See the operation below.(my words is insede [])
>ssh localhost
ssh:connect to address port 22: connection

[Then, I tried to remove sshd and add again. ]
>cygrunsrv -R sshd
>cygrunsrv -I sshd --path ./usr/sbin/sshd.exe
>ssh-host-config -y
[after inputting CYGWIN=ntsec tty]
cygrunsrv: Error installing a service: OpenService
:Win32 error 1073
The specified service already exists.

[But if I run the ssh localhost again, it prompt same
error as original]
