I'm new to these forums so please forgive me if this is in the wrong place. I recently tried to gain access to an old game website. However when I type in the website address I got an error page instead.
It seemed to me like the site was simply no longer hosted. Well upon further digging I ran into a post on a forum.
Basically what this was telling me was that the site still did exist at the above location, you just couldn't enter the site because the DNS **Mumbo jumbo** were offline. To be honest I didn't know what it all meant, I logged over to windows in boot camp, followed the directions, and viola there was the website that I needed.Quote:
Navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Right click on the "hosts" file and go down to "Properties".
You want to turn off the "Read-only" option. Hit OK to save the options.
Double click on the "hosts" file and open with Notepad.
Add these lines to the file
So my basic question is....How do I do the same in mac? Basically how do I add this site and IP to my "hosts file" in OSX? I just don't want to have to boot camp over every time I wanna get to the website.
