10.4: Host name resolution works as expected
Authored by: hasseg on Jan 04, '08 04:02:29AM

I've been trying to find the place where the name resolution order is set in Leopard, and haven't been very successful. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I don't know how to find the order in Leopard, but editing /etc/hosts works fine to block files for me. i.e.

adsite.com <tab> 127.0.0.1

my bad, I had that backwards. My /etc/hosts file looks like:

127.0.0.1 <tab> www.myspace.com

and voila! myspace.com is blocked. I had to have the www's there, don't know why.
