I am running Xampp (Apache, Mysql and PHP) on my Windows Vista computer. I have curl installed on my machine. When I try to curl my localhost in the command prompt, I get the following:
curl -v -i localhost * timeout on name lookup is not supported * About to connect() to localhost port 80 (#0) * Trying 127.0.0.1... % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- 0:02:00 --:--:-- 0 * Connection refused * couldn't connect to host * Closing connection #0 curl: (7) couldn't connect to host
However, if I curl a live site, such as google, it fetches appropriately. This issue only appears when using the command line. I am able to curl localhost from my local server via php script without any issue.
Is this a result of some sort of Apache config? Or is there some sort of network or internet settings that need to be configured/adjusted in Windows to get it to work right?
