  * install openssh from cygwin's setup.exe

     * answer 'ntsec' to "environment variable CYGWIN"
  * run: cygrunsrv -S sshd
  * test it from another machine:
     * assume 'server_machine' is the hostname of the machine running sshd
     * assume 'bob' is the username on server_machine
     * run: ssh bob@server_machine
     * you'll be asked for the password on server_machine for username bob
     * if the password is blank, you won't be able to use ssh. Ensure username bob has a password
