SSH "built-in" misleading


the ssh section below admin/configuration says “Use Built-In Server”
I wonder what built-in actually belongs to, built-in to gitea or built-in to the host os?

In my special case, i start gitea-1.16.5-gogit-windows-4.0-amd64.exe , the config shows
SSH Configuration [checked]
Use Built-In Server [unchecked]
but process isn’t listening on port 22 and no ssh connect possible.

The docu at says
“SSHD is the built-in SSH server on most Unix systems.” so i guess built-in refers to host os and not gitea. Please consider to update the text in the config web ui accordingly.
