Hi,
to all is there a way (without any additional program, except OS) to
redirect an ip ?
Let me explain.. I want to disallow users of my pc to go a particular IP
address.
for example suppose that www.xxxxx.com is at aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd IP address.
If in the host file I create a row with 127.0.0.1 www.xxxxx.com whenever I
tried to use www.xxxxx.com (iexplorer, telnet,ping and so on) it is
redirected to 127.0.0.1 (localhost). But if I use the IP address i manage to
reach it.
How could I redirect it to 127.0.0.1

Many thanks in advance
Fabrizio

You cannot block an IP with the HOSTS file.
If you are using an IP address, the computer will connect directly to the site without ever consulting the HOSTS file.
Add it to the Restricted Sites list in IE (6.0 and higher only)
