    Default how do i use my listening ports on my mac?

    okay I'm trying to use "ssh" local host 22 on my mac and for some reason it is saying this error ssh: connect to host localhost port 22: Connection refused
    this is my code:

    import java.io.IOException;
    import java.io.OutputStream;
    import java.net.ServerSocket;
    import java.net.Socket;

    public class ServerMain {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    int port = 22;
    try {
    ServerSocket serverSocker = new ServerSocket(port);
    while (true) {
    Socket clientSocket = serverSocker.accept();
    OutputStream outputStream = clientSocket.getOutputStream();
    outputStream.write("Hello World\n".getBytes());
    } catch (IOException e) {

    Can you copy the full text of the error message and paste it here?
    Is this a java problem or a mac OS problem?

    Please edit your post and wrap your code with code tags:
