Host file ( /etc/hosts ) not working right or I'm confused.
My /etc/hosts file contains the following:
In a terminal, when I ping, tr, etc. to facebook.com, it does appear the host file is working correctly as it shows resolving to 127.0.0.1.
However, if I attempt to surf to facebook.com in a browser (Firefox, Opera, and konqueror) the page pulls up fine and my firefox IP plugin shows it resolves to 126.96.36.199.
Can someone explain what's going on here?
