All of the following worked for me, but your mileage may vary...
Run cygrunsrv -I cron -p /usr/sbin/cron -a -D -e "CYGWIN=tty ntsec" -d "CYGWIN Cron"
Run ssh-host-config and the script will install the service for you.
Run iu-config at the Cygwin prompt.
Run mkpasswd -l > /etc/passwd at the Cygwin prompt. This creates the passwd file which is similar in format and function to the *nix passwd file. Run mkpasswd with no parameters for a usage summary. You might need to add a -d parameter to grant domain users access.
Edit /etc/passwd and delete everything but the accounts you want to have access permissions. (In most cases, you'll end up with only two lines in this file -- your account and Administrator.)
Make sure that your home directory (ie, c:\cygwin\home\userid\) exists.
Run the following two commands:
cygrunsrv -I inetd -d "CYGWIN inetd" -p /usr/sbin/inetd -a -d -e CYGWIN="tty ntsec"
cygrunsrv -S inetd
Now, you should be able to telnet and ftp into your machine
