OpenSSH - sshd logon failure

Sun Oct 2 02:35:00 GMT 2011

I had set this up a while ago on a different computer, but I can't get it
running now. I've followed the directions at and I'm getting the
following error.

Gulshan@GSJK-PC ~
$ cygrunsrv -S sshd
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: StartService:  Win32 error 1069:
The service did not start due to a logon failure.
I don't know where to start troubleshooting this error... I've ran Cygwin
with admin privileges every time I installed it.

net start sshd doesn't work either.
