Some things to check:

Are you running these services as SYSTEM?  Separately, or through inetd?
If the former, do you have problems with any other services (e.g., sshd)?
If the latter, do other inetd services (e.g., ftpd) run ok? Do you get the
same errors in the logs (either in /var/log/*, or in the Windows Event
Log)?  Do you have the appropriate entries in /etc/services?  Are you
running any firewall software?

Oh, and please attach your cygcheck output as requested in the Cygwin
