Thank you very much for your reply!
I'm very sorry but I was not able to find online the official cygwin
documentation of sshd (probably it's my fault);
moreover, at the beginning, i was only trying to get openssh working; then
,googling around, I found nfong site describing how to get an ssh server service
working and just followed instructions; I already wrote to nfong and he also
kindly replied once, but sshd still doesn't work.
If i understand your suggestion is to uninstall cygwin and restart everything
from the beginning, isn't it? I was thinking the same; the only problem is that
nfong, in his guide, said

Should i eliminate the variables created of point 3) and 4)?
what is the real answer to the last question of ssh-host-config?
Finally, is it true that I have to add an exeption for port 22 in the firewall?
again thank you very much
