This question is
. It is not currently accepting answers.
product, service, or learning material recommendations are off-topic because they tend to become obsolete quickly. Instead, describe your situation and the specific problem you're trying to solve.
I'm writing an application that makes connections to
SSH servers. It doesn't need anything specific from the server (except running under GNU/Linux). I need
SSH servers for running my application tests.
I was wondering, is there some kind of free and open to anyone SSH servers? Maybe it's an idea for a new service :)

Maybe you can use virtualization like
virtualbox ? You can setup a running small linux server quickly this way.

As suggested, better than need internet connection and free 3rd party ssh accounts, get your own. You can get Virtual Machine (VMWare, VBox, Other) for that, and also, if you have an android mobile you can use SSHDroid (free) instead.
And don't forget Cygwin (Linux environment emulation with some package install support). You can set your ssh server built in windows and no need to get entire system (like vm does). A guide ( http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/install.121/e22624/preinstall_req_cygwin_ssh.htm)
