OpenSSH-2.1.0 sshd setup

I've set the system environment variable CYGWIN to "binmode export tty" and set
my rights to include "Act as part of the operating system", "Incrase Quotas",
"Log on as a service", and "Replace a process level token".  I then started
sshd2 from within a DOS command prompt (without any Cygwin executables running).
When I "ssh2 nt-box", I still get "Failed to allocate pty!".  Do I have to run
sshd2 as a service?

Any help would be appreciated.
