i've been trying to find a solution to this for a long time... what i wish to do is create custom URLs on LAN against which users can easily access to some site without using the actual URL e.g.
if the user types : http:searchme in the browser then he/she will be redirected to http:google.com
similarly, http:checkmail in the browser and he/she will be landed on http:gmail.com
I read somewhere that such thing is possible by editing the Rhosts or hosts file on the server.
Any help here would be appreciated!
