WinSSHD by default uses an access id you define. Don't use userid/password, use a public key.

Installing your public key, see also

  1. Create a text file with the two lines:
  2. ---- BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
  3. ---- END SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
  4. Paste your key from ConnectBot into the text file between those two lines. Start with the line after "ssh-rsa", finish before the 1st space, do not include key name, like this:
  5. ---- BEGIN SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
  6. AAAA***...****==
  7. ---- END SSH2 PUBLIC KEY ----
  8. Open the WinSSHD console, choose "Open Easy Settings", "Windows Accounts", "add"
  9. Add the windows account to access, allow port forwarding, "Public Keys", press "Import", select the text file your created above, it's a good idea to add a note
  10. Save changes and close
  11. The account user name you chose is the account name in ConnectBot
