Yes, sorry, I think I confused things here.
You are right that the help document is wrong in that the help document
says “127.0.0.1” 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).
