    Not quite sure what you're getting at, but it sounds like you want to edit your hosts file to point that address to your localhost.

    yes that is exactly what i want.. so instead of putting an ip adress i should just put "localhost'? or is there a local ip adress i can use?

    localhost is 127.0.0.1

    go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and open the hosts file in textpad. Add in an entry for
    Code:
    127.0.0.1           www.aman.com
    leave the localhost entry in there, save and give it a go. I tried it for a laugh, it works but wanted to authenticate to the machine with the guest account and wouldn't let me change the user for whatever reason...
