Put the hostnames you want to use in your local hosts file (if *nix it's /etc/hosts, if Win it's C:\WINNT\system32\drivers\etc\hosts or similar). It's as simple as: 192.168.10.20 realhostname dev1 dev2 foo newclient Then you can access all your test sites as http://dev1, http://dev2, http://foo, http://newclient, etc. I have a virtual host "docs" where my local copies of documentation live, so I can just type `docs/Java` or `docs/HTML` into the location bar...  depending on your flavor of *nix, you may have an 'nsswitch.conf' file that tells the system where to do name resolution. If you do, edit appropriately. -- Hassan Schroeder ----------------------------- hassan at webtuitive.com Webtuitive Design === (+1) 408-938-0567 === http://webtuitive.com dream. code.
