Hi, I have a network problem with a Mac in an NT network. I think it's related to name resolution so I was trying to find an hosts file (as in /etc/hosts) does anyone know if there is such a file on a mac and where I can find it ??

I'll illustrate the problem: I have an NT server running Exchange. about 25 Windos clients connect to this exchange server without any problems. I have 2 mac's with an exchange client (5.0) for macintosh but they cannot find the exchange server. If I type in the netbios name of the server I cannot verify the mailbox because there is no connection with the exchange server. If I however type in the IP nr. of the exchange server it does verify the mailbox login but it automatically changes the IP nr back into the netbios name and loses connection because of that. . . .
