sshd password authentication failure on windows 2000 advanced server + lots of debug info

Reference :

I am using :

generated ssh keys in /etc using

ssh-keygen -t rsa1 -f ssh_host_key -N ""
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f ssh_host_rsa_key -N ""
ssh-keygen -t dsa -f ssh_host_dsa_key -N ""

generated passwd file using mkpasswd -l
generated group file using mkgroup -l

for cygrunsrv I use
cygrunsrv -I "sshd" -p /usr/sbin/sshd -a '-D -f /etc/sshd_config' -u
validUser -w validPasswd
Although for my windows 2000 advanced server box I have not gotten to this
point since ssh -d fails.

sshd -d starts up (see logs : )
but ssh -v-v-v receives password authentication fails. (ee logs  : )

This only occurs in windows 2000 advanced server. I
performed a standard cygwin install (setup) and the
above  for windows 2000 server and workstation and NT
server (service pack 6) and windows 2000 advanced
server. Only the advanced server fails.
If any reader has any suggestions, I would appreciate
it. My objective is to use secure file transfer (scp)
and remote administration (ssh tunnelled vnc).

I apologize for my multiple posts. I can not figure out to how to reply to a
thread through my e-mail client.
