Directory Access
Authored by: tuscantwelve on Nov 08, '05 09:08:12AM

To get your Mac to respect /etc/hosts you can do the following:

Open up /Applications/Utilities/Directory Access
Select "BSD Flat File and NIS", check the box, and click Configure... at the bottom to make sure the "Use BSD local files" is checked.
Save and exit.

NB. Untested, but should work.
