When running netstat -a on my local machine, i see ports on the 0.0.0.0 address listening. I would assume that 0.0.0.0 is my local machine, except that i also see 127.0.0.1 listening to specific ports.
What is the 0.0.0.0 address? What is the difference between 0.0.0.0 and 127.0.0.1?
Below is an example of the output:
Proto Local Address Foreign Address State TCP 0.0.0.0:445 MyComputer1:0 LISTENING TCP 0.0.0.0:49156 MyComputer1:0 LISTENING TCP 0.0.0.0:49157 MyComputer1:0 LISTENING TCP 127.0.0.1:6999 MyComputer1:0 LISTENING TCP 127.0.0.1:6999 MyComputer1:49801 ESTABLISHED TCP 127.0.0.1:6999 MyComputer1:57172 TIME_WAIT
