    New browser can't resolve addresses like 127.0.0.1 etc


    Hi there

    The new browser (build 10074) can't resolve addresses like localhost or things like 127.0.0.1:9000 (my music server).

    Is there a way to make IE11 the default browser again.

    The music server when web control is activated fills in the correct address OK with IE11 but the new browser leaves the URL as blank --it's a pain to have to enter it manually via launching IE11.

    I also have some video servers -- same problem when using the Web interface --I need IE11 to be the default browser.

    Screenshot enc.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    Thanks -- I think I'll skip that

    I reset IE to my default browser (control panel==>default programs)

    I'll wait until Ms has a proper fix for this.

    Spartan is "isolated" from localhost. It can't read local files that are not in its sandbox, and it can't connect to localhost ports. I don't know why this is, likely a security configuration... But the point is to prevent the browser from being able to modify anything outside of its sandbox in case it gets hijacked by something.

    If MS makes that configurable that could be really good for looking at sites you are unsure of.

    Would that affect router addresses as well? Some are 10.x and some are 192.x

    My Logitech Music Server works in Windows 10 when I run it in Chrome.

    No. Those addresses do not resolve to the local machine. Only local loopback addresses. 127.0.0.1, ::1, etc..

    Yes, because it's not Spartan. We're only talking about Spartan.

    Hi there
    No problem -- It's only if the new browser is the default -- so when you open WEB control it starts the NEW browser instead of say Chrome or IE. resolving LOCALHOST:9000 with Chrome or other browsers isn't a problem.
