Hosts file not remember after reboot (need help new member)



  • anyone can help me ,i edit hosts file at  /etc/hosts and  /var/etc/hosts  but hosts files not remember after reboot.  :'(

  • Add your hosts under "Services" –> "DNS forwarder"

    ok. it's work ,thank you for help me very quick. ;)

    Is this supposed to work for a single name (not fully qualified)?

    I'm trying to get a machine called test to resolve but nothing happens.

    Host  Domain  IP          Description
    test          test          1.2.3.4         test

    I want to be able to ping test and have it respond at 1.2.3.4
    It should also respond to http://test

    thanks

    btw: /etc/hosts shows
    1.2.3.4     test    test.test

    but I can only ping test.test….. not simply    test

    update:
    It took a few minutes, but my other machines are now able to ping "test"

    Is there something I need to restart to make this happen quicker or do I just need to let it runs its course?



  • Search the forum.
    I posted somewhere screenshots of exactly this.

    To access test instead of test.test you have to leve the field host empty.

    ie:

    Host    Domain    IP            Description
                  test          1.2.3.4        test
