Subject Re: Run Apache without TCP/IP?
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2002 14:04:59 GMT
HTTP uses TCP/IP.  There's no way around it, except to write a different
protocol.

However, if you're only trying to make sure no other machine can
connect, this can be achieved simply, even using TCP/IP.  Use the Listen
directive to explicitly listen to localhost (127.0.0.1):

Listen 127.0.0.1:80
ServerName localhost

This is your loopback address - if you then open '127.0.0.1' or
'localhost' in your broswer, you should be able to connect to the
server. Noone else will be able to connect, because if they try to reach
'localhost', they'll be looking at their own machine.

Hi everybody, im a newby here.
Sorry if my question is too stupid.
I would like to know if there is a minimal chance (or
even a real way) that Apache would run without TCP/IP
installed in the machine, in case to have the server
running only locally, just to serve some appliction.
Is it possible?

Thanks in advance.
Matheus Agostini.
