my hosts file looks like this
it should open facebook if you try to open google
184.108.40.206 google.com ## # Host Database # # localhost is used to configure the loopback interface # when the system is booting. Do not change this entry. ## 127.0.0.1 localhost 255.255.255.255 broadcasthost ::1 localhost fe80::1%lo0 localhost
also after I added that first line I did:
dscacheutil -flushcache; sudo killall -HUP mDNSResponder
on a OSX 10.8.5 but it doesn't changes anything.
I searched for a while and found different things none helped me.
On this link: Hosts file in OSX Lion not blocking as expected there is a good answer but I don't know how to check which file format I have.
So the question is: - is there something wrong with my hosts file? - how do I check which file format I've got
