How do you do stand-alone ip networking on a Mac ?

locaHost doesn't seem to act very well while not connected. Is there something (free) like NT's "MS call-back" virtual card ?

I do not understand the contradiction. How can you network if you are standing alone?

Stand-alone TCP-IP networking is the use of TCP-IP to communicate from one program with another while not connected (so on the same Mac).
I'm a (PC) java developper. I wrote some application that do networking (among others a web-browser and a servlet-server). I'm used to go on programing on PC while not connected by using MS looping card (virtual network card).
I made a port of my main application on Macintosh (not to hard, It's pure java! just have to know that it's ten times or more slower...). It works fine but I have to be connected.

In summary, while not really connected, I want to connect from my mac to my mac in TCP-IP...

Sounds like fun...but...this question (include your last comment with the question) would be better served in the Macintosh Programming area of Experts-Exchange rather than the Macintosh Communication area.

how bout using 127.0.0.1 which is a loopback...that address always takes you to your point of origin. so for example if i got on my computer and telnetted to 127.0.0.1 i would see all my local directories...same with ftp.

Sorry Weed, I must find another Mac to test it.
You may have to wait a little for your points...
