why are "http://localhost:8080/" and "" not
Actually i am running the JAVA WEB SERVER(TM) on my machine
and all of the "http://localhost:8080/",""
and "" are resolved perfectly by Internet
Explorer when i am woking on my standalone PC but two of them i.e.
"http://localhost:8080/" and ""(IP address
of my machine) are not resolved in the LAN envionment of my College
Lab.only the loopback URL i.e. "" 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??

but ur college pc doesn't have that address.

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 Gopal,
do you have any other proxy setting in your browser?

Well 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.
