How to securely control another Mac over the internet
Authored by: nwfrg on Oct 18, '05 03:48:15AM

127.0.0.1 refers to the localhost or is it the loop back.

Whatever. It means the network port of the local machine. It's like running an extension cord out your front door and then back in through your own kitchen window and plugging it into the outlet by the sink. Well sorta. Perhaps that's a bad analogy.
