ssh tunnel on port 22 connection refused

I have been trying to use virtual PC 2007 with DSL and putty in order to create an ssh conenction so I can use remote desktop through my works firewall to (obviously) connect remotely successfully. I have already changed the port in regedit in windows xp, but when I boot virtual pc and start my damn small linux ISO, then log into root with sudo su in the terminal and run the command "ssh dfm@(insert IP address here)" terminal gives the response "connection to port 22 failed, connection refused." I have enabled port 22 as an exception in windows firewall, but to no apparent success. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I am a noob to linux and ssh at that.

Can you telnet locally on the machine? so: telnet localhost 22. Do you get a response?

I realized what has happened. I needed to make an exception to port 22 on windows norton 360. However when I type in ssh dfm@(insert IP address here) it now goes to a blank line. Having never used SSH before, what do I do now?
