Thread: Does localhost need to be in the routing table?

    Does localhost need to be in the routing table?

    When I use the command "netstat -nr" localhost or 127.0.0.1 does NOT show up in the routing table. I can ping both localhost and 127.0.0.1. I am usíng Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

    So my question is does not localhost or 127.0.0.1 need to be in the routing table?

    Thank you.

    Nope. Localhost setting is set in hosts file and it's nonroutable.
