    localhost not working

    I have knoppix 3.9 on my hdd.

    I have started apache with apachectl start.

    When I point a browser to http://localhost
    I get the browser timing out.

    I get the same result with http://127.0.01

    With my static IP address assigned to me temporarily with my dsl provider, I can view my defualt apache web page.

    Any help?

    In my /etc/hosts file I do have the following:
    127.0.0.1 box1 localhost

    Thanks

    Jerry
