I am a user on a Solaris 10 system and I wish to maintain my own version of /etc/hosts. This file will function like a normal /etc/hosts, except it will only resolve hosts from processes that I run.
Since I do not have the ability to write to /etc/hosts and I do not wish to have to ask the adminstrator to reconfigure it for me. (please don't go into this more)
I am open to other alternatives that will allow a non-privileged user the ability to add custom host names. The solution must not involve the superuser doing anything.
