HOW do you login? telnet? rlogin? ssh? Did you start the
appropriate deamons? How? Did you read the documentation?
The READMEs in /usr/doc/Cygwin?

This points to a problem with the account which is used
to start the daemon. Does this account have the needed
user rights as described in the READMEs?
