Adding lo to /etc/network/interfaces fixed the problem. You are a genius!
Well now we know at what level we have to start at when Dotan has a problem.
I never claimed not to be slow! Actually, I don't know if that was
meant to offend, but I am not offended.
It was not meant to offend. It was a statement of fact. Your question
showed that you are not used to setting up networks. As you do not use
Debian, which requires some network setup in the raw. You use Ubuntu
which does this for you, or is supposed to. Therefore when you ask
networking questions we now know you have little knowledge of the basics
so that will require us to start asking very basic questions.
I would you suggest that the Ubuntu ML/Forum would be better suited to
your queries anyway being that you re using it and they are, probably,
use to questions from users of your level.
Google didn't help with that problem???
No, but I didn't know which keywords to google. I'm wiser now.
Ok Grasshopper. Here is a subject you could have used for google
can't ping 127.0.0.1 "linux" returns
Results 1 - 10 of about 604,000 for can't ping 127.0.0.1 "linux".
Look familiar to you?
