Hi there.

When we 'ping localhost' some of our pcs resolve to [::1] instead of
[127.0.0.1] . This is causing problems because IIS is used on each pc,
and some cannot access local ISS webpages using the url
http://localhost/ whereas http://127.0.0.1/ does work.

What can be going on here?

Googling this is difficult because one cannot google for "::1".

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
grolschie

Many thanks. I googled for "::1" and it come up with only "1"s. I will

Wonderful!!!! It was because someone installed IPv6 and the localhost
for IPv6 is now ::1.
Uninstalling IPv6 fixed it!!!

Many thanks! :-)
