Cygwin is not a prerequisite for running a server on your laptop. It is a way of having a *nix like environment on your Windows machine. Trying to connect to localhost via ssh is rightly refused, as you are already there.
If you want a server on your laptop, look at installing a Linux distribution in a virtual machine, if your Windows 7 version will support it.
