emulate host file change

2 posts in this topic

I'd like to write a tool to test virtual host configurations without changing the host file.

Is ist possible to simulate the nameresolution to a virtual host <-> IPadress with autoit?

For example:

I've set up a domain as virtual host on my server. test.domain.com

My server has the ipadress 10.0.0.3 (for example).

Now I want to send a request to the apache webserver and see the content of the virtual host.

10.0.0.3 test.domain.com

It is possible to perform this test by changing the local host file.

So it might be possible to "fake" the request with a script.

You might be able to manually add an entry to the dns cache somehow, this way it will only resolve until the cache is cleared.
