Tim Rohaly

127.0.0.1 is a special IP addressed reserved for the local host, or "loopback address". It refers to the host on which your program is running. Operating systems typically implement "network" communications with the local host by a sort of software short-circuiting the ethernet hardware, effectively looping back the connection.
