Thread: Hosts.sam Not Working :(!

  1. #1
    As you may know there is a file called "hosts.sam" in the c:\windows
    directory which redirects DNS Names to IP adresses.

    But this file does not work on my Win98 (SE) - I tried everything I know,
    but it still does not work - I want my computer to redirect me on
    when I am browsing offline ""?

    I have typed in the HOSTS.SAM and HOSTS file: localhost

    Please help me, I know this worked one time for me - I do not know
    why now it is not working properly. Now it show me when I am offline:

    Any kind of help would be gladly appreciated

    HOSTS.SAM is just a sample HOSTS file
    HOSTS file must be all CAPS (for the filename not the contents)
    in win98 you need to reboot for the changes in HOSTS. to take effect

    it's the file 'C:\Windows\HOSTS' no file extension

    Sorry, it was my fault - I thought I saved with TextIt the entries in HOSTS, but
    it automatically saved as *.txt. I now changed it successfully.

    Have a look
