SSL VPN appending /etc/hosts file

Hi all. My work is 100% telecommuting from home. To do this I connect to a Citrix Metaframe Server over a Neoteris SSL VPN. Unfortunately the VPN needs to edit my /etc/hosts on the fly, and create local connections on priveleged ports, so if I want the connection to work I have to run my browser with root permissions. Is there a way to do this without using the browser with root permissions. I'm thinking that I need to change the permissions of /etc/hosts, but I dont know what permissions to give it. Any help is appreciated.
