So this proves that sshd is running.

Windows XP firewall, most likely.

I had this problem, perhaps caused by testing stunnel, the solution was to add
(again) sshd.exe to the list of exceptions in Winblows firewall settings.

Just as a note, I'm using port forwarding at my router since my computer is
behind NATP.

Just create the user and group under windows, re-run mkpasswd and mkgroup (just
append the new user and group), then configure cvs to use those (usually in the
repository passwd file).
