why are "http://localhost:8080/" and "http://188.8.131.52:8080/" not Actually i am running the JAVA WEB SERVER(TM) on my machine and all of the "http://localhost:8080/","http://184.108.40.206:8080/" and "http://127.0.0.1:8080/" are resolved perfectly by Internet Explorer when i am woking on my standalone PC but two of them i.e. "http://localhost:8080/" and "http://220.127.116.11:8080/"(IP address of my machine) are not resolved in the LAN envionment of my College Lab.only the loopback URL i.e. "http://127.0.0.1:8080/" is doing fine. to specify more there is no internet connection in my lab but a simple peer to peer LAN enviornment. what may be the possible reason forthis problem??
its just simple that when ur home pc does have ip address 18.104.22.168 but ur college pc doesn't have that address. just get the ip address of ur college pc. tell if problem persists

dear Maateen, the address i have given here is just for symbol actually i am giving the actual ip address of my lab pc. and http:\\localhost:8080\ is also not resolving.so the problem is not so simple.
Hi! Well 127.0.0.1 is the ip of the local host.. but then you havent told anything about the LAN that you have in the college. if you do have one with Winnt then the ip of the machine (on typing ipconfig in the command prompt) together with the port on which the JWS is running will suffice.
