I'm running an Apache webserver with name-based virtual hosting. I've set up the necessary blocks, etc. Since I wish to test this out without actually buying domain names, I've altered my Mac's internal DNS (I'm on OS X Tiger). I did this using the technique described in http://corz.org/serv/tricks/hosts.php, using a string of commands of which the last was
sudo niload -v hosts / < hosts.
Everything has been working fine for months. Now, as I've begun to learn about NetInfo Manager.app, I see that all of the name-ip pairs that I've defined show up in this application. Is there any burning reason that I should use niload, instead of using NetInfo Manager.app from now on?
