I've set up a web server on my laptop for testing. I didn't have an
internet connection for a while the other day and discovered to my
dismay that I couldn't access most of my servers.
I placed the server names in my HOSTS file, with the IP address
127.0.0.1. Oddly, this works only when I have an internet connection.
With the cable disconnected, I can use only localhost and 127.0.0.1.
I'm using Windows XP. The last time I used Windows 2000 was about two
years ago, but IIRC, it did not have this issue.
If anyone has any ideas, that would be great!
