When running OpenSSH server under cygwin on a windows machine,
does each SSH connection require a buying CAL (client access license)
Wes Miller, Research VP at Microsoft  answered my similar question
on the PowerShell/OpenSSH github project .
Basically, an OpenSSH server (PowerShell,Cygwin and any other) fall
under the same restrictions as other remote access types.
For windows "server" editions: CALs required for all users connecting to
For "desktop/client/home/pro" editions: governed by the same limitation
as remote connections. Only one user at a time (and likely only the
"Primary user") can access the machine remotely.

 Github answer:
 different vendors do not alter the answer (e.g. Microsoft program vs
cygwin program): https://twitter.com/getwired/status/923643485911224331
