    Possibly i should elaborate - the loopback adapter (127.0.0.1) is just a bit of software to verify your tcp stack is all present and correct - it doesn't run any daemons and nobody can hack it.
    If you want to scan your real ip address - type "ipconfig" at a dos prompt or "ifconfig" in bash to get your proper ip.

    Well you obviously know everything there is to know about computers and network security - i'm sorry for bothering you by answering your questions.
    And anything post 95 will accept ipconfig.

    First of all "ipconfig" is the DOS equivilent to "WinIPcfg"...Perhaps you should have tried "ipconfig" in DOS before posting.

    Both display the same information and have the same features, the only difference is "WinIpCfg" has a nice GUI

    I hope this has cleared up the "IpConfig", "WinIpCfg" misconception.

    openBSD is soo much more secure than any linux distro unless of cource they are properly "locked down" If you use openBSD they havent had a remote hack in four years in all of reality not many people know about openBSD and lots of people dont know how to "hack" it but i would say BSD is a great thing and is very trustworthy

    just a note to the neophytes...

    linux..... i would expect OpenBsd or BSD to be the most secure...... becus *nix gets hacked almost everyd ay.... but u barely hear about BSD being hacked.. or is it just underpublicized?

    Hey kiddo....Just to clear any misconceptions you may have on your haXor journeys...BSD IS ****ING UNIX! BSD is more unix than any Linux.

    can a windowze OS ever be as secure as OpenBSD or *nix ?

    Again.....BSD is "*nix"

    First step is to figure out what type of OS your you talking about...
