Thank you so much. I didn't realize that I needed to do this. This
is a little over my head so thanks for the help. I did a
ssh-host-config and followed the instructions, rebooted the computer
and then did a ssh localhost.
Here is what I got
$ ssh localhost
The authenticity of host 'localhost (::1)' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is 12:e6:5d:c7:e0:2a:5f:60:dd:2c:69:8e:40:26:25:63.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
