!27.0.0.1 vs. 0.0.0.0

I can use any number of tools to see what ports I have 
listening and/or connected.

But among the *Listening* ports, some are 127.0.0.1 and some 
are 0.0.0.0.

What is the difference between 127.0.0.1 and 0.0.0.0 ? Since 
I've got both - there MUST be a difference.

Thanks,

Alan

0.0.0.0 stands for all interfaces
(example: yourIPaddress,127.0.0.1-127.254.254.254)

127.0.0.1 stands for local interface only (127.0.0.1)

I don't get it. I guess I'm slow today. Could you paraphrase 
the part:

"0.0.0.0 stands for all interfaces
(example: yourIPaddress,127.0.0.1-127.254.254.254)"

I just don't get that at all.

sorry took a ride..

yes lets say your internet address is 217.254.255.1 (its obviously not)
then lets say the listening address is 0.0.0.0, what this implies is that if
someone connects to your internet address(217.254.255.1), the port will be
open on (217.254.255.1 as well as 127.0.0.1) and accept there connection.

where if the listening address was 127.0.0.1, if someone connected to
(217.254.255.1) , the port would not be open, and the connection would be
refused

now the 127.0.0.1-127.255.255.254 i was just reffering to the local ip
addresses, you can ping any ip address from 127.0.0.1 to 127.255.255.254,
and your computer will reply (its all localhost)

   Hi,

   Just to butt in for a moment, (scuse) ... a service listening on 0.0.0.0
   is open for connection requests from all incoming ips on any port, but
   127.0.0.1 is for local only ... would that be correct ?

127.0.0.1 means listening for other local processes to connect. 0.0.0.0
means listening for traffic from the IP external interfaces.

1.5.0.0.3 vs 1.5.0.0.4
I have had numerous difficulties with FF 1.5.0.0.4, in particular, some sites often just hang when I click on links. A particularly bad site is Dell http://www.dell.com/, which - when I try to configure a computer - gets all kinds of "waiting for dell" status bar messages. I tried it with a clean profile, to no avail. It works flawlessly with IE. I downloaded fresh copies of 1.5.0.3 and 1.5.0.4 with the intent of uninstalling the latter and then trying the former. *The uninstall process hung*. So I installed 1.5.0.3 on top of 1.5.0.4.
