ifconfig shows this
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr : 127.0.0.1 Bcast : 127.255.255.255 Mask: 255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK BROADCAST RUNNING MTU:3584 metric: 1
RX packets: 0 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 frame: 0
TX packets: 0 errors: 0 dropped: 0 overruns: 0 carrier: 0
is this set wrong because of the local host entry for Bcast?
should inet be returning 192.168.0.1?
thanks for any help
happy mother's day to the mothers out there.
