  2. Hosts file editing

    I have to jump in and say I use, and have used the host file for years. It's an easy way to take stress off of old name servers. I don't add everything, but major shares I do add to the host file. I've used the host file for some tunneling as well. I try to optimize my network as much as possible and I have a solid network. But Easy Rhino is right as well, you'll want to have everything he suggested as well. *Toast :toast:

    Hosts file editing

    They are not accessing our system remotely at all. I am just talking about a hosts file for their home internet and a hosts file for their school internet. So when they go home their internet at home still works, otherwise with the proxy in for the school internet it would obviously not work! =P
    But thank you, I know their are MUCH better ways out there.
