    127.0.0.1 is your server (local loopback address), which means that your server is calling up the board for some reason.

    Yep. 127.0.0.1 is the server itself. But I haven't seen or heard of a case like this while using IPB. The local loopback address comes in place only in the setup of the mysql conf .. Is localhost or 127.0.0.1 anywhere else in the board conf ?
