Yes, I didn't even know it existed. It is a new term for me.

I looked for .ssh in my /home directory and did not find it. Where do I
look for known_hosts and ssh? While waiting for a response, I will look
in my /home/steven directory.

I just make the folders known_hosts and ssh but install them where?

I want to connect from my old computer to my new computer. I have about
250gb of not backed up data to transfer.
I notice you have your username included like an email address. I did
not do that when I tried to get fish to work, I did this:
fish://192.168.0.100/storage1. Perhaps that is my mistake. I have no
knowledge to draw from, this is a new experience. Thanks for the help.
I need to take a break for a few minutes. I will return to your
instruction in a bit.
