Hi Brian,

Sorry, I can't follow you here and I can't distinguish between answers and
questions in your above sentences. Why change the local loopback address If you've installed TCP/IP on a network board it is bound to a
fixed IP. And if you installed dialup networking you've either a fixed or
a dynamic IP address (given by your ISP) for this.
I only know the following: You can use either your loopback or network
IP address to connect to a web server running on your local computer,
you can use your network IP address to connect from LAN to it and you
can use your (dynamic) internet IP address to connect from the web.
This is what I do and it works in that way whithout any extra things.

I'm not sure if I full understand this, assumed you run the webserver coming
with Novell IntraNetware (started as a server NLM) it is a thing of this
servers own configuration (I never used Novells web server but I think it's
possible to map a Netware style path SERVERNAME/SYS:DIR1/DIR2 there).
Assumed you're running Pi3Web and it is only installed on a network drive:
I made this with UNC paths in the mappings - \\SERVERNAME\SYS\DIR1\DIR2.
Once the mapping is done it doesn't matter from where the page is called
or of what kind the physical paths behind the mappings are.
