Hi turpinj,

Thanks for pointing out the difference between Mac OS X and Windows. This problem you are seeing is a limitation of Mac OS X. Windows provides 127.x.x.x for the loopback, but Mac OS X only provides 127.0.0.1. To use any other address (127.0.0.2, 127.0.0.3, etc.) you will need to manually add the interface. Here is an example command for adding an IP address:
Code:
ifconfig lo0 alias 127.0.130.65/32
You can also find more detailed information about this topic on the internet using your favorite search engine. Does this help you accomplish your goal?
