If you want this enabled indelibly just for the sshd service and you don't
want to go skulking around in the registry, you can re-run ssh-host-config
and specify 'smbntsec' as one of the settings when it asks you what you want
for the service.  This is a good thing to do because it allows you to be
specific about the settings each service gets.  Otherwise, if you want the
setting globally, just set it in the CYGWIN environment variable and
restart all Cygwin services.
