I thought your server was running on windows?  To get SSH running on
windows you need to severely disable and hack the windows server
resulting in basically a compromised server.  Use sserver protocol
instead, it does not require any hacks into windows and is as encrypted
as ssh.  Our recommendations for protocols are here:

CVSNT records the username as passed from the authentication layer,
provided that is the same then the user will appear identical to CVSNT.
