I had come up with the same problem of local host&
though I was gives quite a few suggestions,unfortunatetly it didn't work for me.Any way thanks to all those replied.
When I was searching previous pages regarding the same topic, I was given maha Anna's site,wherein it was mentioned that local host needed a network card to work.I suppose I don't have a NIC & how should I proceed now, to make the local host work.
Thanls in adavnce
