This question arose because I am using port 3000 for some Ruby training, and I keep typing in...
to access the ruby server.
I wanted to use a logical name in the address bar (eg. "ruby"), but found that the "hosts" file only names hosts, not ports. This led me to the "services" file, and I found that I can enter...
in the file, but it doesn't seem to do anything. ie. I can't type
as I expected.
So, how do I use this name that I've entered? Is there some other way to accomplish my purpose of using a shorter name in the address bar?
