When accessing my company's intranet, I cannot use the name, i have to use the IP. However, all the links in the website use the name, so I'm always having to paste the IP in the address field.

Is there a way to tell Windows the IP of a web when its not on the DNS?

Hello. I already had added the entry to the hosts file. I can ping it but the page still won't come up in the browser when entered by name. I cleared the browser cache but still no luck.
