  1. Running Internet Checkers as localhost


    I understand that support for these classic games has ended, however for nostalgia purposes I am trying to set it up with local host to play with a few friends to reinforce old memories. Once I can set it up on localhost I can use vpn apps to connect a few players. When searching for solutions I come up empty handed. Is connecting/matchmaking via local host possible?

    :)

  2. Access localhost from another computer

    Localhost, as the name suggests, points at the localhost. Use the hostname or IP from your computer on their PC's. ie something in the 192.168.x.x or 10.0.0.x range most likely.

  3. Internet + localhost server randomly inaccessible

    Hi,

    I'm working on a 64bit installation of Windows 10 Pro where the internet access and localhost server randomly are inaccessible. All browsers (Edge, Chrome, Firefox) can't load localhost server (which was running perfectly before) or other (external) sites
    / servers. Also on Windows lock screen no internet connection can be made.

    After reboot problem is (temporally) fixed. Pinging google.com works and on all other computers in the network the problem doesn't occur. Network adapter displays connection without any problem.

    What I've tried so far:

    • disabling virusscanner / firewall
    • ipconfig /flushdns (I'm using Google DNS servers)
    • network cable changed / switch port changed
    • complete reinstall of Windows
    Any ideas what this may be?

    Running Internet Checkers as localhost

    Windows update checker runs infinitum

    Hi Akheel, I have run the update checker tool as you suggest in step 1 and it has discovered an error

    "Service registration is missing or corrupt"

    Should I try step 2 above to resolve or is there another way?

    many thanks.
