What is cygwin ?
Cygwin is a set of tools to add POSIX compability to a Windows System. Imagine, you can grep and less and use vi and the Basic System is Windows system.
You can also install a sshd for remote access.

To install cygwin under windows7 , you need the newest release . I used version 1.7 , Beta but stable.

The installation dialog is similar to most linux distributions. Choose the packets you want but don’t forget the sshd.

After the installation is finished open a shell and do the following
ssh-host-config -y
When prompted with “CYGWIN=” type for following:
tty ntsec
Then you can start it with.
cygrunsrv -S sshd
Be shure that your Firewall accepts incomming ssh connections.
