    Hi

    Apologies. This is reposted due to updated nospam alias.

    On some vista machines users cannot access a local web server on localhost
    via the
    browser.

    Access via is fine 127.0.0.1.

    This seems to be due to a conflict with IPv6.

    Is there any way around this other than editing the hosts file or disabling
    IPv6?

    This might be a bit complicated for some users.

    What is the cause of this problem?

    Why is it a problem on some machines and not others? Is it caused/fixed by
    a service pack or update.

    Thanks for your replies.
