Hi, I have problems with apache, i installed it via the .exe installer, and i choose the option that install it for all users, but when i try to run apache, it shows this message:

socket type not supported: alloc_listener  failed to get a socket for 127.0.0.1

i changed the port several times but nothing happens

I do not have connection to internet neither a firewall or modem.

Do you have TCP/IP installed on the machine?

could you do a "ping localhost" or "ping 127.0.0.1" ?

The error clearly indicate that there is something wrong with the TCP/IP stack on your machine.  I would advise that you may want to try to reinstall TCP/IP network component.

In most cases, you should be able to ping to the 127.0.0.1 (aka. loopback address).  Otherwise, almost (all) TCP/IP services may not function properly.

What is your OS or Windows version?
