Can I create a user-specific hosts file to complement /etc/hosts?
In short: I would like to know if it is possible to get a
~/hosts file that could override the
/etc/hosts file, since I don't have any privileged access.
A machine I am working on does seem to be properly configured with a correct DNS server. When I try to ping usual machine name I am working with, it fails. But when I try to ping them by IP address it works as expected.
I want to avoid changing any scripts and other musuculary memorized handcrafted commmand line ™ that I made because of a single unproperly configured machine. I contacted sys admin, but they have other fish to fry.
How can I implement that?
