With no response to this message, I reran ssh-host-config, which fixed
the broken sshd and very kindly did not even require me to re-enter the

Starting from a default installation of sshd that was working properly,
I tried uninstalling sshd with cygrunsrv and reinstalling with --type
(cygrunsrv --install sshd --path /usr/sbin/sshd.exe --type manual)
After rebooting I cannot start sshd with cygrunsrv. Instead, I get
message "Error starting a service: Query service status: Win32 Error 1062"
Is it practical to use "--type manual" with sshd, or are its security
restrictions too tight for this kind of installation? My intent was to
have sshd off by default, but available when I need it, with current
status easily seen with ps.
Is there an easy fixup for my broken sshd, or should I rerun
Inspecting the ssh-host-config script, I see that installing the server
requires some configuration options that I don't understand. I'm now
using the firewall to disable the server by default, though "net start
sshd" and "net stop sshd" would have been more convenient.
