While experimenting with the Bit Web Server app I have noticed that when I attempt to access my device's localhost, the connection seems to be sent somewhere else.
Using the localhost button in the app sends me to
http://localhost:8080, however this displays a blank page, whilst removing the port number takes me to a page that has the following written on it:
Bytemobile Dummy Web Server.
http://localhost:8080 with no connection (WiFi and Data are turned off) I simply get
Unable to connect to the proxy server.
I can however connect to my device's localhost fine when connected to WiFi.
Why can I not connect to my device's localhost? Surely it should not need a connection for it to connect to itself. Why does it only work when WiFi is enabled and how do I change this behavior?
