A forum I visit broke on the weekend (and is still broken) such that it's address was no longer configured to any website. PC users avoided this problem by adding a new line to their hosts file containing the ip address and web address of the forum. However I understand that hosts file in Mac osx aren't used in that way and that the Netinfo Manager is supposed to replace its function. In Netinfo Manager I added a new subdirectory under machines, named it as the web address and added its ip address as a new property. However that hasn't worked to solve the problem. Is this the wrong approach or are there additional things I need to do? Thanks for any help you can offer.
