Gasp! I hit the "I'am Feeling Lucky" button. erdelynet was the first link out of 15,900 links while googling with cygwin sshd. Worse yet is this link with nice pictures with a name like Oh no Mr. Christopher Faylor I found a link with one of the Cygwin's project leads with her name on it so I guessed it was ok. Say it is isn't so, she said "tty netsec". Now I just don't know where to turn for both ssh and Cygwin help. LOL oh Darn I was wrong. I repent. But how shall we clean up the 819 google links that match cygwin sshd tty ntsec? There are another 1,120 that match cygwin ssh tty ntsec. Those erdelynet and pigtail boys are near the top of the list.

It's just plain fake.  It's not even used if ntsec is in use, only if
ntsec is explicitely switched off.

Could some please update that user-guide then.

Together with the FAT32 issue maybe.
Very Well said. There seems to be several ways in which this could be set up depending on the MS Windows platform patches and other combinations of Cygwin DLLs in use.
