your Proxy Server can communicate across the public and private networks
The Zone Server is the machine where you installed Realm Crafter Professional
by default. This is only private facing and has a private IP and port.
And finally, the Account Server also uses the default settings and has a private IP
You will notice that all of the IP address fields listed in Figure 6.6 (except for the Master Server
for which I have deliberately deleted the IP address so that it
s not detailed in the topic)
contain the loopback IP address of 127.0.0.1. This is a special IP address given to all network
cards. If this IP address does not work, there may be a problem with your network card or
