Can I set access to all subdomains in my local domain in etc/hosts file?

Like

127.0.0.1       localhost *.domain.local

Now it looks like

127.0.0.1       localhost domain.local mail.domain.local web.domain.local other.domain.local ...

No, wildcards are a DNS lookup thing; trying to do the same thing in your /etc/hosts doesn't work. Sorry.

Ok, got it, thank you again –  fl00r Aug 11 '11 at 8:52

No, you cant do that in your hosts file. You should though be able to setup dnsmasq quite easilly to do this. Adding

address=/domain.local/127.0.0.1

to the dnsmasq.conf file should do what you want.
