Localhost address works <file://localhost/Library/WebServer/Documents/index.html> and IP address works <http://65.96.40.195/index.html> but <http://127.0.0.1/~wmcentee/> fails. Do you have any idea which part of my system is broken?

    What browser are you using? Try getting to that 127 address with any browser BUT Internet Explorer. Even in my own testing, I've always had random problems with IE under OS X, but if I start loading the URLs into Mozilla, Opera, or iCab, they work fine.

    If that 127 doesn't work in any browser, I'll have to confess, I don't know what the issue is. I'm not a mogul of networking - I favor all the fringe extra stuff on top of the network (apache, sendmail, ftp, security, etc.)
