I installed teh CYGWIN and then OpenSSH followed the instruction and everything look fine except that when I use SSH to connect to the server, the password just will not accepte.

I guess the password should be the passwd used for Window 2003 Login. The passwd file in the etc shows that the:

kflee:unused:1008:513:Dr. K. F. Lee,U-DELL19A\kflee,S-1-5-21-460736608-169402134-236365637-1008:/home/kflee:/bin/bash

I tried use "unused" as password and it has no effect.

What is the exactly passwd SSH use?

So if I understand this correctly this is a question regarding OpenSSH Server on Cygwin running on a windows 2003 and not involving Tectia products. Is this correct?

I'm not familiar with OpenSSH under cygwin, but maybe some other community users may be able to help with this.

yes, this is not a Tectia product question. I am confused when I enter http://www.ssh.com it is redirected to Tectia site. I mistook they are one.

Right. It is a bit confusing.

To clarify: SSH Communications Security underwent a name change and as of last April we are now known as Tectia Corporation. Tectia Client and Tectia Server are commercial SSH client and server products developed by Tectia: tectia.com (formerly ssh.com ) , whereas OpenSSH (and derivatives) are open source and maintained by openssh.org
