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.
