NAME

ifcfg-lo - loopback network LAN interface configuration 

SYNOPSIS

/etc/sysconfig/network/ifcfg-lo*

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.

 

EXAMPLES

Sets up loopback interface lo:

ifcfg-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.
