DNS and Hosts file on macTCP 2.0.6

I have macTCP 2.0.6 and an existing application working with an hosts file.
I have configured DNS on macTCP for internet access. I  have to keep the hosts file, but it doesn't work. When DNS is activated, hosts file is no more used.

The Hosts file should always be used by MacTCP.  Make sure that the format of your Hosts file is correct.

You may also want to try trashing the MacTCP DNR file, and rebooting.

There is a good MacTCP guide available at <http://www.math.niu.edu/~behr/Comp/mactcp.html>.

Are you setting up something in the hosts file that would conflict with the DNS servers?  If so, MacTCP may be getting the information from the DNS servers and not looking at the Hosts file because it already has the information.
