Mike,
Is there any way to check the hosts file first??
        No, not that I'm aware of.


Perhaps you could use an alternate name? You could define anything
that is unique in your HOSTS.LOCAL and be able to reference it via
telnet since DNS won't resolve it.


        Another thing that you could do is run the nameserver on the
machine and have it be an authority for the names that you are now
adding into the hosts.local that are also in DNS.

regards
Mike
