Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one.

-- Ursula K. LeGuin

comment Multiple IP addresses for same host name in /private/etc/hosts?
This is probably overkill, but isn't there a real dns server for osx I could configure in place of the hosts file? I recall doing something similar on a vista machine where I installed ISC Bind so I could block certain DNS lookups.

Yes, I did that and added the certificate to the local trusted list, but it still complains because the dns name of the server does not agree with the name on the certificate without the hosts entry.
