Connection refused after ssh localhost using Cygwin

Hi,

I am following this link below in order to setup my Windows environment for Hadoop:
http://hayesdavis.net/2008/06/14/running-hadoop-on-windows/

When trying to execute the command $ssh localhost, I am getting "ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused".

I've tried to add Cygwin in the firewall from my machine but did not work. I am behind my company's firewall as well.

Do you know how to fix that or test whether I have missed anything in my installation?

Thank you.
