Glad you got things working with what sounds like a minimum of
reconfiguration (i.e. no reinstall ;-) ).

I'm glad you found this link useful and it helped you get OpenSSH working
for you again under Cygwin.  I would be remiss, however, if I didn't
point out that this link and site are in no way affiliated with cygwin.com
and therefore the instructions at howtogeek.com are not supported or
recommended by this list.  While a quick review of the link suggests that
there aren't any fatal flaws in those instructions, there is at least
one piece of information (use of 'ntsec') which is obsolete.  Presumably,
this link and others like it will grow more and more out-of-date as time
goes on, with no one supporting the information.  This is why we recommend
to users that they avail themselves of the documentation provided by Cygwin
(see /usr/share/doc/Cygwin) instead of random web sites and links they might
find.
