Thanks. Tried it and that is the name

This is on a window 2003 server and required that I run inetd as the user
sshd_server which means taht sshd-server has to be running before I start inetd.
  Setting the dependdencies did the trick.

For a test I used "-y sshd" and it seemed to pickup up the name "CYGWIN sshd"

Thanks for your responce.
