W10 Developer mode installs and enables minimal MS SSH server for Settings
"Device discovery" mDNS service "SSDP Discovery", also "SSH Server Broker", and
"SSH Server Proxy" services.
Enable/disable them to affect MS W10 SSH server.
In Developer mode you also have Optional Features you can add for OpenSSH
Server and OpenSSH Client.

To connect to Cygwin sshd, disable W10 SSH services as above, uninstall SSH
Optional Features, and in Settings disable Device discovery to stop mDNS.

Then log in under your user account admin and start Cygwin mintty/bash to set up
your Cygwin environment for that user, and in an elevated mintty/bash session,
run ssh-host-config script and answer the questions (normally take the defaults)
to set up sshd as a Windows service running under the cygrunsrv daemon wrapper.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
