I just thought sharing the issues I faced while setting up sshd on cygwin.
All went well till I executed
$ cygrunsrv -S sshd
I got a message
"The procedure entry point _ctype_ could not be located in the dynamic link
Upon searching cygwin maillist
and doing things as suggested
i reached a mail asking to check cygwin by
$ cygcheck -s -v
to my supprise I found another "cygwin1.dll" (1998 version)
on my system installed by "CheckPoint VPN SecureClient"
And it come in PATH before C:\cygwin\bin
I rearranged position of all Cygwin dir in the PATH variable.
rebooted PC and my sshd start working fine.
as a bonus I got similar issue with postgresql also got resolved

believe they proclaimed the "End of DLL Hell" a few years back, realized
they failed, and starting calling that a feature of every Windows version
since. What a joke the MS marketing people are!

I will jointly blame CheckPoint VPN SecureClient for this
They installed cygwin1.dll at
even though I have latest version of cygwin at
I feel Cygwin must insist others (the companies who use
cygwin in their prouct) should use cygwin setup to install
official cygwin components!!!
I wasted more than a day for this reason.
While i installed postgresql, i finaly gave up
assuming i made mistake.
when i installed sshd, i was 100% sure i followed
And as I was particular in getting it fixed
I started searching archives !!!
I was unable to do X11 Forwarding.
