Mapping a host name to a virtual IP address

You can optionally map a host name to the guest's IP address.

Procedure. To map a host name to a guest's IP address:
  1. In a text editor, open one of the following files:

    • For a Unix-based OS, open /etc/hosts.

    • For Windows, open C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.

  2. Add a line <ipaddress> <hostname>, where <ipaddress> is the guest's IP address and <hostname> is a name of your choice.

    127.0.0.1 localhost
