I don't recommend following third-party instructions about how to make
Cygwin work. There's plenty of good experienced people on this list
willing to help and third-party instructions are notoriously unreliable.

Are you running this from a Mintty window?

The next thing I would try is "ssh -vvv". The debug output may give you
a clue as to what is going wrong. You should also look at
/var/log/sshd.log and the Windows Event Viewer for clues.

It is inconceivable that a judicious observer from another solar system
would see in our species -- which has tended to be cruel, destructive,
wasteful, and irrational -- the crown and apex of cosmic evolution.
Viewing us as the culmination of *anything* is grotesque; viewing us
as a transitional species makes more sense -- and gives us more hope.
