Server side setup for using winscp?

pardon me for asking rookie questions. I just installed winscp 3.8 on my windowsXP PC, tried to login to a UNIX server (with hostname, user name, password specified) and got the message saysing "Network error: Connection refused".
I believe something on the UNIX server (an AIX 5.3 machine) needs to be started and/or configured. Could you tell me what to do or point me to a documentation please?
The WinSCP login port number was the default 22, the "private key file" was not provided.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Server side setup for using winscp?

It seems that there is no SSH server running on the server or some firewall blocks the connection.

For a typical UNIX system, what would be the SSH server's name? should there be a line in the inet.conf file to activate?
Thanks...
