The loopback is set up automatically, there is no need to do anything for it.
The settrans command above should be fine (with real IP addresses, of course).

I don't know what you thought this would do, but it certainly doesn't do
anything you wanted. /servers/socket/3 is the location for the PF_IMPLINK
protocol family's server (PF_IMPLINK is 3, as PF_INET is 2 and PF_LOCAL is 1).
/hurd/pfinet does not implement that protocol family, and unless you've
fallen into a time warp, you surely don't have an IMP protocol network that
you need to support. (If you are in a time warp and do want to put your
Hurd machine on the original ARPAnet, then by all means we encourage you to
write a pfimplink server.)
