Ip address 127.0.0.1 is a localhost, packets your computer send cannot route beyond your computer, this IP address can be used to test various services on your computer. 2372 is port number.
http://127.0.0.1:2372/ is a URL for k9 web protection control pannel. That means, k9 web protection control panel is configured in your localhost on port 2372
i know that but whats :2372 is it a protocol port ? if yes which protocol ?
Its a localhost!
Its non-routable IP address that is defined as referring to the “local” computer.
