I am running Windows 7 in a Parallels Desktop 6 on Mac.
On the mac, I use
and it works fine; I can type
mysite in the URL box and the website will display.
What I want to do is be able to reproduce the same on Win7 with IE8, for example.
Another guy on Server Fault has done it successfully, here but I can't.
On Mac, I've done this:
ifconfig -a vnic0 10.211.55.2
On Windows 7, I tried this
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts 10.211.55.2 mysite
What am I missing?
