Getting sshd enabled for remote login

I also install Openssh, so that I can ssh into the box remotely from my GNU/Linux workstation. I found these directions helpful:
To supplement those given in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README. In the prompt for running /usr/bin/ssh-host-config, I answered No to ``privel sep'', yes to ``service'', left daemon blank and pretty much took the defaults from there. To test that the service is up, just look up your IP address (``IPv4 Address'' from ``ipconfig'' ran in cygwin window), and try to ssh to that IP address from the machine itself. If that works, sshd is working. If you can't login from a remote machine to it, then the most common problem is that the Windows firewall is blocking it. I had to change to change my windows firewall settings under control panel, under advanced settings, I added a rule to accept TCP port 22.
