I've been able to use cygwin to build and run sshd2 (ie sshd-2.1.0 -- I'll
sshd-2.1.1 today) (although it may not be that secure since it uses the
dll -- I'll see if I can statically link in cygwin later on).  I'm able to
to the NT box and execute a command (eg "ssh2 nt-box pwd"), but I'm not able
do a plain ssh2 into the NT box -- I keep getting "Failed to allocate pty!".
I've gone through a lot of sites already saying to:
set CYGWIN=tty
grant rights to the user running sshd

but I've had no luck.  If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.  Does
have to run as a service?  How do I set it up to run under inetd?  What are
problems with this?  What are my alternatives (besides not using NT :) ?

I was wondering if anyone has tried installing the SSH2 Server software for
Windows  ?   (Not the client software.)

I went to the following URL:

They don't seem to have it.  Can any verify this.  I don't think there is a
binary file for SSH2 to act as the
Server for incoming ssh connections for the Windows O.S..  I hope I'm wrong,
so where can I download it ?
