Other than that, my WAG is that you need to reboot.
prob a win xp problem, would be solved with a win xp repair.
my mistake i was only trying to start it with things like net start
Best tihng to do is just to run it.
That works. I don`t need to install it as a service. Installing it as
a service and starting it, that was where the problem was.
Some article on the net on the LRP site, about running sshd, only
mentioned the "net start sshd" or "cygrunsrv -S sshd" method to start
The recommended way to run 'sshd' is as a service. If you run it directly,
it will run as the user that you start it as and you won't be able to log
in through 'ssh' as other users. This rather severely limits 'sshd'. As
for the 'LRP' site you mentioned, if you used that site's information as a
guide for installing and/or setting up ssh, then any problems you have with
subsequent operation should be directed back to that site. We support only
the tools (ssh-host-config, ssh-user-config) and documentation (/usr/share/
doc/Cygwin/openssh.README) that Cygwin provides.
