I am trying to understand why when I type in a url address that is for a development server my browser changes it to an IP? In the top of my host files I have something like
I can access the base url just fine, but when I go to
devserver/page/index.php it turns it into an address like such
188.8.131.52/page. I think it has something to do with the host files or the fact that I use a VPN (Cisco IPSec) to access the development server. Could this be the reason why? I can't find any information on people having similar issues.
All my host files in
hosts hosts.equiv hosts.mamp.bak hosts.save hosts~orig
