Unless you have an ssh server running on 'localhost', then
this command will not work because your 'ssh' client has no
server to communicate with.  Setting up a (Cygwin) ssh service
on your Windows computer is possible, but it's not likely that
you want to do that because you have said that you are new to
using ssh.  Instead, you should find out the IP address of the
ssh server, if any, is available on your network.  Once you've
found out that IP address, then you should first ping it to
confirm that your computer has some basic network connectivity
to that address.

Cygwin provides a simplified method for creating ssh encryption-
key files: ssh-user-config.  After removing your present key files,
run that script, and respond to its prompts.  Typically, you will
not need the RSA1 and DSA key types, so you can respond no when 
prompted to create them (they are less secure than the RSA2 key
