One thing I know for sure: in FTP connection you can put
address 127.0.0.1 It is loopback address.

Pinging 127.0.0.1 from the dos-prompt is ok, but when I try to access 127.0.0.1 from my web-browser (netscape 4.03) then it  always tries to start the dial-up connection to my isp (ibm), i.e. the ibm internet access software is launched.
I have no idea where the connection between netscape and ibm's dialler software is defined. When this connection is established it seems to be possible to access my local www-server. What i'm now looking for is a way to 'contact' the local web-server without connecting to ibm before.

So your answer is a next step in the direction i want to go, i.e. another required piece of the puzzle (but not the final one).

Thx!

Just couple of things:
When you start and work with computer (single) you don't
have TCP/IP protocol at all. You get it 'over' dial-up line.
And this protocol delivered to you by your ISP. To check
yourself locally you need some sort of TCP/IP 'daemon', in
other words TCP/IP server program. Usually you have daemon
working on LAN. And you convert yourself to ISP. Try to check
SimTel software repository for TCP/IP daemons
