MUDs FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about MUDs.


Summary How do I connect to my own PC to test my MUD?
Question I am running a MUD at home on my own PC, and want to test it when I am not connected to the Internet. However I only get a TCP/IP address from my ISP when it dials-up. How can I test without dialing up?
Answer Every host has a "local" address called "localhost", which is the IP address 127.0.0.1. Thus, if you want to test a MUD running on your own PC, just connect to 127.0.0.1, at whatever the appropriate port is.
