    You can run the cygwin sshd from a DOS/command shell line rather than
    from within cygwin, you just have to have the cygwin DLL in the path
    when you do so.

    At home, I had it running on Windows ME by having a BAT file launch it
    in a startup folder.

    XP/2000 is even easier because you run one script and it sets it going
    as a service. Then you start/stop it from the normal services panel.

    Finally, I haven't tried it, but someone pointed me at this a few months
    ago. It's a "slimmed down" version of openssh. However, it's
    apparantly still got cygwin underneath.

    I don't know of any native windows servers.
