ifcfg-lo - loopback network LAN interface configuration
The local loopback mechanism is used to run a network service on a host without requiring a physical network interface or making the network service inaccessible from/to the other networks the computer may be connected to.
The name localhost normally resolves to 127.0.0.1 (IPv4 loopback address) and to ::1 (IPv6 loopback address).
Example: A locally installed website/service may be accessed via a web-browser by the URL http://localhost to display its home/configuration page.
- Sets up loopback interface lo:
IPADDR=127.0.0.1/8 NETMASK=255.0.0.0 NETWORK=127.0.0.0 STARTMODE=nfsroot BOOTPROTO=static USERCONTROL=no FIREWALL=no
Note: Loopback is automatically created and set up by the Linux kernel.ifcfg file marks it STARTMODE=nfsroot to skip a shutdown on network ifdown requests.
