My hard drive has a fresh install of Snow Leopard. I checked the connections with Network Utility, and everything looked fine.
I changed my hosts file with the one from here:
After I flushed the cache, I ran Network Utility again, and it showed w9.hitbox.com as LISTENING. If I connect to the internet, it shows as CONNECTION ESTABLISHED.
Why is this, and do I need to change something to make the hosts file work correctly?
EDIT: The beginning of the hosts file:
and further down: 127.0.0.1 w9.hitbox.com (along with a bunch of other blocked sites)
