Thing is, I'm pretty sure nothing is listening on port 80.*

started it on 8080 instead. Tried going to localhost:8080 in

From there I went to my hosts file which is as follows

understand is where the 10.132.0.1 <http://10.132.0.1> comes from.
This computer's ip on the
network is 192.168.0.104 <http://192.168.0.104> (static) and my ip
on the internet is
77.something.something.something (was when I did the ping at least).
I hope the above is enough information. Suggestions on why Apache
start listening on port 80 and why I can't connect to localhost:8080
from firefox when Apache is running are welcome.

This may sound like a silly question, but is loopback running
- Mark Shields
This was exactly the problem. I switched from the traditional startup
scripts to NetworkManager a while back and I guess NM doesn't handle lo
by default. Does anyone happen to know if NM handles the loopback
adapter at all?
