    #2 is a loop back, that is usually used to test the network interface. If the network is not enabled, can have the network cable disconnected, then the loop back doesn't work. Can you open Teminal and do a "ping" and get a responce. It might also have to do with having the Firewall on, or some that is hidden that is new in Tiger.

    It has the IP set according to whatever the current connection is. However, on panther i could access my site folder (apache server) by going to
