IE 7.0 - Issues with 127.0.0.1 and localhost

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Naresh Mirkhelkar, Mar 10, 2006.

  1. Hi,
    I had IE6.0 where everything was working fine. ie it treated
    http://127.0.0.1 and http://localhost in a similar way. But, when i upgrated
    to IE7, i am able to get result with http://localhost but not with
    http://127.0.0.1.
    I checked with hosts file and the localhost is properly mapped to 127.0.0.1.
    Is there any specific setting within IE7.0 that needs to be set to map the
    DNS with IP?
    Thanks,
    Naresh

    I am running IE7 Beta 2 on both the local server
    and local network. Whatever setting you need
    to work on, it is on the same 'Internet Properties',
    unless you have some special firewall program
    that you need to setup. There are bunch of
    changes need to be made on IE7, but most of it
    is appearance and speed. Good luck.

    P.S. I was running ZoneAlarm on the local server
    for a long time. Ultimately, I gave up and running
    Sygate Personal Firewall now. Setting are a little
    elabotare on Sygate, but it behaves well for the
    local server. Just a comment..

  4. DO YOU HAVE THE LOOPBACK ADAPTER (127.0.0.1) TRUSTED IN YOUR FIREWALL SETTINGS?

  5. I use windows firewall and am not sure about LoopBakAdapter. However, it
    seems IE is trying to use the proxy server for 127.0.0.1 also. Please see the
    below error message which is recived when tried with http://127.0.0.1.
    However,I enabled the "Bypass proxy server for local addresses" check box and
    have also added the IP in "advanced" section of Internet options->Connections
    Lan Settings ->

    Technical Information (for support personnel)
    Error Code 10061: Connection refused
    Background: The server you are attempting to access has refused the

    Make sure in the "Local Intranet", "sites" settings in Security,
    you have them all checked.

  7. Yes, all of the check boxes are already checked. The problem still persists.

    Thanks,

    I would remove IE7 and reload IE6 again. Make sure after
    you remove IE7, the IE6 behaves properly. When the IE6 is
    running OK, without changing any settings, you should reload
    IE7.

    Next question - do you have network access from user
    pc to the local server PC? .If so, then you have loaded
    something which is blocking the TCP/IP.

    When all else fails, try loading the latest Mozilla or Opera
    browsers. If they work, it is not a TCP/IP problem..

    Hope you haven't unchecked the
    'Internet connection Sharing'on your local server.
    If so, then IE6/IE7 will not be able to receive
    Internet. But still you can transfer files and use
    printer on your local server....Just a comment.
