TCP Endpoint to check IP address of "localhost"
-----------------------------------------------

                 Key: RIVER-389
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/RIVER-389
             Project: River
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Tom Hobbs


>From the River User mailing list where someone reports a problem starting services because
of network configuration"

"This is exactly the kind of complication that makes "getting started" pretty painful.  Many
people would find this to be so odd that they would not even ask for help believing that the
software had been compiled with a private network or that something else was broken in river.

"We've answered exactly this question with exactly this solution many times as I recall. 
The fact that "security" requires "addresses" to be "correct" is one of the no-start issues
that will be very prevalent.

"I believe that we should have the TCP endpoint costructor do a lookup of localhost and if
it is not 127.0.0.1, log a message, and potentially throw an IOException, demanding it be
fixed."
