how to config IE to recognize the localhost(127.0.0.1) address without testing the connection to internet first?Now I have to connect to internet first before I can use my tomcat.

azure -
My answer is below; but first, please change your name to match the JavaRanch Name Policy. Thanks!
----------
IE can be pesky that way - use the fully qualified url - http://localhost:[port]
Works for me.
Also - you might want to check your connection settings.
Tools -> Internet Options... -> Connections tab
Make sure 'Never dial a connection' is selected.

Have you installed a loop-back adapter?

It doesn't look like it's the same problem at first, but keep reading that post.

Hi there,
You should be given an option of "Connect" and "Work Offline", have you tried "Work Offline"?
Cheers,
Mark

Can you tell us exactly the behavior you are getting? Mark - good call on the network adapter loopback. Do you have a network adapter in the machine?
