The issue for me was connecting from FreeBSD to FreeBSD, but it is working 
now.  The problem was that on the FreeBSD laptop from which I was connecting, 
the lo0 interface was not actually up.  If I set the IP address to 
lo0 and then tried to connect via SSH, it worked.  I fixed the problem with a 
small edit  of /etc/rc.conf
