I installed Git for Windows and it came with the "Git Bash", which is basically MinGW32. I noticed that it has SSH, but doesn't have SSHD.
What is the easiest way to get SSHD in MinGW32?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
A Bash shell is not "MinGW32". I'm feeling generous today, so here goes...
Windows Bash shells
Other Unix-y stuff
Where does all the confusion come from?
MinGW.org maintain MSYS, and people not thinking clearly often give both the same name, or say both are the same thing. This is not true. MinGW(.org/-w64) is a CRT that heavily relies on msvcrt.dll. It has no Bash. It is not Bash. You could call "MinGW GCC" plain "MinGW", as the two are closely related. Don't call MSYS "MinGW32". That's just evil.
To answer your question: install cygwin, and use its package manager to install sshd.
