Windows Host Resolving

To override TCP/IP name resolution on your Windows machine you can edit the following file from your Windows installation directory.

c:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Just add the desired entries to that one file. For instance:

192.168.0.12    mywebsite.net
192.168.0.1     myrouter 

This trick is most useful if you want to resolve addresses to name on you local network without setting up a proper DNS.
