I use Windows 10 as my programming environment for writing websites with a Debian VirtualBox that the actual web server runs on.
So when I need to test my websites, all I had to do was add them to my hosts file and I'm good to go.
Now the problem comes because I'm trying to test my local websites with my iPhone. I've followed the tutorial here http://www.windowscentral.com/how-turn-your-windows-10-pc-wireless-hotspot to help me connect my phone to my computer's internet connection hoping that I would be able to go to "dev.testsite.com" from my phone now, but it seems as though the Windows hosts file isn't being used by my phone.
Is there a way to set this up so that the iPhone uses the hosts file from my Windows computer to figure out which DNS records I have overridden?
