Difficulty copying files from server/ ssh problem

I'm trying to copy files from server using the command scd.
So I ssh to server x, then used
scd <filename> <user@hostname:/home> and I get the error:

ssh: connect to host <user@hostname> port 22: Connection refused.

where hostname is actually my machine.
Then I tried ssh localhost from my machine, didn't work, still connection refused on port 22 or any port.
I read it might be a firewall problem but I'm not sure what that is.
Any help, please?

Problem solved
Problem was sshd demon wasn't up.
Started it using "service sshd start" in case someone has the same problem.
