[OpenLayers-Dev] somewhat dumb question

If you define your wms/wfs with a localhost url, it will not work because the
remote try to access the wms service on itself.

So you have to define the wms layers with an IP or a domain name.

var wms = new OpenLayers.Layer.WMS( "OpenLayers WMS", 
                "http://labs.metacarta.com/wms/vmap0?", {layers: 'basic'});
