    Hey guys,
    i blocked my wii u mac adress to block wii u updates and i don't know how to run self-hosted files. I tried some tutorials, but it seems my wii u cant connect to localhost.
    Thanks in advance! :)

    You're hosting a web server on the Wii U itself? How would you even do that without running an exploit first? If you don't have a computer to run a web server on, get a Raspberry Pi or something.

    You said you couldn't connect to localhost, which would be the Wii U if you're connecting from the Wii U. You need to connect using the IP address of the computer running the web server.

    Can you connect from any other devices on the same network, like a mobile phone with WiFi or something?

    Nginx, probably in a virtual machine.
