i found this from a quick google search

What is 0.0 0.0?
In the context of a route entry, it usually means the default route. In the context of servers, 0.0.0.0 means all IPv4 addresses on the local machine. If a host has two IP addresses, 192.168.1.1 and 10.1.2.1, and a server running on the host listens on 0.0.0.0, it will be reachable at both of those IPs

maybe if your PC is busy talking to itself on 127.0.0.1 then if you use 0.0.0.0 it just directs it to whatever is available to relieve any congestion on 127.0.0.1 (just my guess)

yup, it still crashes on occasion, now that i eliminated chromium i suspect the video card, it is a high powered card a Radeon RX580 but i am no PC gamer so i wont miss it, and the GeForce card will consume less power, i dont have any ms_windows installed, i am just dual booting Slackware current and Devuan ASCII (same as jessie without systemd) and when Slackware crashes i boot up Devuan and mount Slackware to check the logs i guess those malformed & invalid packets are not hurting anything, i have iptables dropping them and set to log all martians,

i would put the older Slackware 14.2 on but i dont think the 4.4.x kernel will boot this PC, it wont run on anything older than a 4.9.x kernel, but other than the occasional crash Slackware runs great on, it,

Thanks Okie

As you said, the explanation for 0.0.0.0 instead of 127.0.0.1 is about half-way down the main page: We recommend using 0.0.0.0 instead of 127.0.0.1

I gotta try that out instead of localhost.

Thanks again !
