I've got entries in my HOSTS file that resolve NETBIOS names on the network here. I can't ping the names but I can ping the IP addresses. Also, the sites I have blocked (going to localhost) are loading fine in my browser. So, I've determined that the HOSTS file is not being read for some reason. Things I've tried: *Rebooting *releasing and renewing my IP *flushing the DNS cache Any ideas?
