I'm using 4.9.  Sorry, I forgot to specify.

I'm not sure what I'm looking for here.  The machine that runs the ssh
client is a Win XP box named 'bigdaddy'.  That resolves on the Win XP box:

C:\Documents and Settings\tomlinson_dr>ping localhost

Pinging bigdaddy [127.0.0.1] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128

The FBSD box running sshd also resolves:

blacksheep# ping localhost
PING localhost (127.0.0.1): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 127.0.0.1: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.519 ms

So what do I need to do?  As I understand it, their needs to be an entry for
the client machine in /etc/hosts which I have.

Thanks,

Drew
