Hi, I am trying to redirect a URL request to a different address but it appears that /etc/hosts is not doing the job. Example:
127.0.0.1 google.com The way I understand it is that by typing google.com in a web browser it should result in the local page being displayed. It instead goes to the proper Google page. `ping google.com' actually pings 127.0.0.1 but `host google' returns the actual IP addresses for google. /etc/nsswitch.conf has `hosts: files dns' and host.conf has `hosts\n dns' Any idea why the system calls are not honouring /etc/hosts? Regards David
