Is there a tool, that allows an individual to temporarily switch between different etc/hosts configurations, without setting up a dns?
I would like to quickly change the etc/hosts config file, so that project1.com forwards to a local IP like 192.168.10.50 without changing information in our DNS server.
We are developing several bigger cms projects. The cms is developed inside a virtual machine. Sometimes we have to make bigger changes to a cms system that is already in production. A developer needs to access the productive version of the site and some minutes later he wants to redirect all requests to the local virtual machine.
A tool, that can easily swap between different etc/hosts configuration files would be ideal.
If possible don't want the users to manually edit the etc/hosts file.
