    127.0.0.1 - ubuntuforum user visits site - strange

    this is strange, a user with a refer from ubuntuforums.org visited my site on Dec. 30 2007 @ approx. 6:33am with firefox and linux, however there is no IP except for 127.0.0.1 which is a local ip, the site is hosted on freewebs so what could this mean? This is the only one showing 127.0.0.1.

    I'm pretty curious as to why it shows 127.0.0.1 w refer of the forums here, as I'd really like to know....

    127.0.0.1 is you. It's your local IP for your computer

    Perhaps the host visited it?

    Perhaps it's a ghost in your computer.

    ghost - na, funny tho, fasterfox I have it but I do not have pre-fetching on, neither do I have pipelining on.

    I visit the site almost daily via exact url to check up on it and see if I missed something, also I do not host the site from my machine at all, it's all freewebs hosted from top to bottom and I use dial-up and my ip range is in the range from 4.0.0.0. - 4.255.255.255.

    It's quite fascinating that it's from a localhost but refer is the forums...
