Setting up Cygwin on Windows 7
Hey guys sorry to bother you all but I can't find the answer to this on google and any help you can offer would be so much appreciated.
So I'm trying to install Cygwin using this tutorial:
Geek to Live: Set up a personal, home SSH server
I installed Cygwin from their website and started installing.. this is a quick gallery I made of the steps I took. I uploaded one of the steps twice by accident but I actually made the local package directory F:\ which is my USB device.
Anyway I can't check off openssh which it shows in the diagram on lifehacker.com's guide shown here:
This is the gallery of the steps I've taken. Note F:\ is my USB device.. I accidentally uploaded two pics with one of them saying I was installing to C:\users\ryan\downloads or something but that was just a mistake.
At the end of the installation I try to complete the final step and open the command menu for cygwin, enter "ssh-host-config" but it doesn't recognise the command and I know it's because I can't tick off that box.
Does anyone know a work around?
Any advice appreciated. Might be something to do with me trying to run it off the USB too?

You might have better luck if you ask the moderator to move your post to networking and sharing forum. More net savvy members will be likely to read it there.
edit: I haven't dealt with Cygwin in some time. But my impression is, if the set up Gui won't let you check a package or option, then it does not detect some requirement. You may need to install in a different order or download more components.

Filling this out, at least partially, will save a lot of time. Another advantage is when posting a new problem, the person answering can just click the My System Specs link in the bottom of your post. No need to search for the information.
If you have multiple systems just indicate that in the System Specs so that we know why many of the fields are blank.
