    Having trouble getting the built-in OpenSSH server to work

    Goal: I'm trying to set up the Windows built-in OpenSSH server (version, as I recall that being the latest one) in order to use my desktop PC remotely should I have the need for raw performance when on the road through a Windows
    10 laptop.

    Problem: Despite following
    the official guide
    to the letter, when I try to run "Start-Service sshd" in PowerShell I get this error:

        Start-Service : Service 'OpenSSH SSH Server (sshd)' cannot be started due to the following error: Palvelun sshd avaamin    en tietokoneessa . epäonnistui.    At line:1 char:1    + Start-Service sshd    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~        + CategoryInfo          : OpenError: (System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController:ServiceController) [Start-Service],       ServiceCommandException        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CouldNotStartService,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.StartServiceCommand
    If I run the executable without "Start-Service", however, it runs and seemingly waits for connections, but according to the Services tab in Task Manager it's not actually doing anything at all, nor is there an SSH user account associated
    with it.

    What I've tried:

    • Restarting Windows (after every installation)
    • Uninstalling and re-installing both the server and the client (both from PowerShell and through the Settings application)
    • Switched to local account instead of a Microsoft account (suggested on a forum thread, tried the previous steps again)
    • Using an elevated PowerShell instance with admin rights

    System information:

    • Windows 10 Home, version 1809, build 17763.379
    • Hardware configuration:
      • CPU: i9-9900k @ 4.9GHz
      • RAM: 32GB 3200MHz DDR4
      • GPU: Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080
      • Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z390-A, BIOS version 0805

    Let me know if other information is required.

    While OpenSSH itself is not malware, it will allow a remote user access to that machine. That could very well be malicious. Especially since he said that he didn't install it.

    Is this a work or school pc? If so, check with your support team to see if they installed it. If this is your home pc, then it may have been installed as part of a software bundle. In settings, apps & features, sort the software list by install date. Find
    OpenSSH and see if other software was installed around the same time.

    If you don't want to allow remote users access to your pc, then stop and disable it. And periodically check it to see that it stayed disabled.
