Yes, sorry, I think I confused things here.

You are right that the help document is wrong in that the help document 
says “” when it should say “localhost”. We updated the 
blog post and documentation on GitHub, and I thought it was the update 
you referred to (as I had forgotten about the copy of the blog post 
embedded in TextMate.app). I have now updated the embedded document as 

So just to emphasize, localhost *is* the correct value to use (despite 
my previous reply) and the reason is that TextMate (now) only listens on 
IPv6 (we can’t listen on IPv4 without creating an extra socket 
observer, which I deemed not worth it).

And thanks for clarifying Brian’s issue, I never realized what the 
exact problem was, but yes, you’re right, he had disabled IPv6 so SSH 
was unable to locally connect to TextMate (and forward the connection).
