I have the same problem on Mac OS X 10.3.9. I'm trying to validate 
pages on my local server before uploading them to my ISP. The validator 
is also running on my local server.

I've set "Allow Private IPs = yes" as above (in 
but it doesn't solve the problem, even after restarting the server - 
any suggestions as to what I might be doing wrong?

Adding "&debug=1&errors=1&esis=1&verbose=1" to the URL of the page I'm 
attempting to check provides no extra info.
