yes I should imagine so, 127.0.0.1 is just the ip number the machine
you are using, I think if you just write a script to listen on a port on
127.0.0.1 it will work fine and then you can write one to connect to
that port on 127.0.0.1. it will work, that'd be why it;s there. But to
use it as some kind of data multiplexer it's not going to just happen on
it's own I dont think , you'll have to write a script to act as a small
service that receives data on one port and send it to a number of ports
(all on 127.0.0.1 if you want) to which you have had your service fork
senders on to give multiple copies of the in-ported data to receiving
Or something like that.
