I am very new to the Mac world buta veteran in the Windows world. In windows you have the ability to setup a host file to point host names to specific IP addresses. When an application needed to do name resolution, it would hoit the host file FIRST prior to requesting a lookup to the DNS servers. Does the Mac have the ability to use a host file? If so where do you put the file?
