Re: DNS server and hosts file???

DNS doesn't use hosts files. And rather than try to create hundreds of bogus
records for these sites, you should instead copy the hosts file to
everyone's computer (location depends on version of Windows) and you should
be fine. You can do this in your login script if you use one.
