As for 127.0.1.2, I'm not sure why that was suggested. Yes, it's not localhost

For IPv4, the loopback interface is assigned all the IPs in the 127.0.0.0/8 address block. That is, 127.0.0.1 through 127.255.255.254 all represent your computer. For most purposes, though, it is only necessary to use one IP address, and that is 127.0.0.1. This IP has the hostname of localhost mapped to it.
