Sorry for the misinformation guys. 
Thanks all for the clarification.  That works for me too.  I have corrected my journal entry.  

Anyrate I agree that the localhost localhost thing is not an obvious thing and should be documented.  I mean that's the common reason I use tunneling so I can have my server only listen on localhost.

Thanks,
