a personal hosts


Hi,

I'm not root on a machine so I cannot modify /etc/hosts but I'd like to add a few entries so that I don't have to use ip addresses.
ping remote_machine instead of ping 192.168.1.1

Of course I cannot add any entries to the dns.

Does anyone know how can I have this name resolved without using dns and /etc/hosts ?

Thanx

that should not be possible ...

try using a different approach,
shell aliases to cover the most used commands and ip's?

not as elegant but it works and will most likely save you
some time ...
