Running SSH Server on Windows XP

This howto document created by the University of Waterloo on "how to setup the Cygin SSH Daemon on Windows 2003" is fantastic. Note that every piece of advice translated directly for me to Windows XP Professional (except for the keygen stuff which I don't use).

There was one thing missing, however, and that is to unblock port 22 in your firewall. By default, the Windows Firewall blocks this port. If you don't, the ssh server will be inaccessible from outside your domain. :)
