i am new here and i was hoping someone may know how to solve this puzzler of mine:
i am creating a web service at the moment and found a little problem when trying to test it. i am testing through a browser using: http://localhost/(webservice here)
the problem is that "localhost" wont run. i can use 127.0.0.1 just fine, i can also use my IP address just fine.
for some reason the "localhost" name is no longer mapped to my computer even though I have used it in the past.
anyone seen this before?
any help would be appreciated. thanks.
