Thread: Migrate Windows' hosts file

  1. #1

    Default Migrate Windows' hosts file

    Hi,

    I have some settings within hosts file of my Windows Vista. It helps me to bypass some limitation and get online better. I would like to migrate some settings to openSUSE 11.4.

    Is there anyone who knows how can I tune my openSUSE?

    FYI, setting of hosts file is lines of <IP Address> <Spaces OR Tabs> <URL OR Alias>

    Regards,
    Toan Le

    You can edit "/etc/hosts" to add entries.

    I recommend that you keep the number of entries small. I have added a couple of entries for systems on the home LAN.

    You need to be root (use "sudo" or similar) to edit "/etc/hosts").

    You probably want to put the same entries in /etc/hosts

    man hosts for more details.

    You need to be root (use "sudo" or similar) to edit "/etc/hosts").
    Tip: For editing root-owned text files like /etc/hosts, two good calls are "kdesu kwrite /path_to/filename" or "gnomesu gedit /path_to/filename"

    And there is of course also the possibility to edit /etc/hosts with YaST > Network Services > Hostnames.
