Re: localhost ports



127.0.0.1 is the correct ipv4 address.

::1 is an ipv6 address. It is mapped to a hostname of localhost-ipv6 on the Debian server that I'm looking at.

Hi,

Thanks for the replys. I think I solved it now.

The hosts.allow and hosts.deny files was empty, but when I looked at the
hosts file, I found that my ip address of localhost was set to ::1. I
then changed it to 0.0.0.0.
I wonder how it could have been change to that funny ip address.

Take care,
Rynhardt

ps: Just as I wanted to send you this message, my mail system
complained about my IP address so I set it to 127.0.0.1.

Hi,

Answering an earlier message, if host.allow/host.deny was responsible, I
think he'd be seeing a connect message and then a "connection closed"
message, rather than "connection refused" if this were the reason.

Here's a thought out of left field.  When you try to connect, are you using
127.0.0.1 or localhost?   Maybe try 127.0.0.1 if you haven't already in
case your DNS is doing weird things to you.

Geoff.
