FC3 host file


Hi all
I've just got FC3 going on a duel boot, all is working ok, very clean install.

Can any one tell me what the file is called to edit the host file, On my XP I had to edit the hosts file to fill in my domain like so 192.168.1.56 www.mydomain.com so I could view it instead of typing the IP number every time.

Can any help me out please, I hope you get the drift on what I'm trying to say

I've only realy use a CLI and not Graphic, but i have read good stuff about FC3 So I'll give it ago.

TT

Do you want to edit /etc/hosts file? I think that is what you mean, you can put hostnames and ip adresses of the hosts on your network in the file. It should work.
