RFC 3330 states:
127.0.0.0/8 - This block is assigned for use as the Internet hostOn a Linux machine, pinging 127.0.0.2 will reach the localhost host and respond. On a Solaris 9 and AIX machine this does not happen. The Solaris 9 routing table had a bad entry,
127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 UH 5 725905 lo0
127.0.0.0 127.0.0.1 U 1 0 lo0
, but that didn't fix the problem. I am about at add 127.0.0.2 to lo0 to see if that makes a difference. Does anyone have a similar experience? Many years ago I worked on Solaris machines and remember doing something for the loopback but I can't remember what and Google searches haven't turned up what I am looking for.
