On a LAN each computer is assigned a different IP address each morning. When I installed Kubuntu 12.10 the IP address assigned to the machine was
10.0.0.2, but today it is
10.0.0.1. When I try to connect to
http://127.0.0.1 in Firefox I see in the status bar
Connecting to 10.0.0.2. However, there is no mention of that address in the
127.0.0.1 localhost 127.0.1.1 bruno # The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts ::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback fe00::0 ip6-localnet ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix ff02::1 ip6-allnodes ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
Note that setting the DHCP server to assign the same IP address per MAC address cannot be done as the router is unplugged each evening (electrical issues in the building) and loses the settings.
