I don't think I've ever had any trouble with a Cygwin
install.  Usually I do a base install straight from
http://www.cygwin.com without selecting anything extra,
(I generally select http://mirrors.rcn.net as the source)
then repeat, selecting openssh from the 'net' section
and Xfree86 at the top level.

You can also use it to port-forward X over it's ssh
