If you are using Trumpet software, you should place your "hosts" file
in the directory that "tcpman.exe" is executed from. Here is a list of
the files that "should" be in that directory:

bye.cmd hosts protocol sendreg.exe login.cmd
setup.cmd tcpman.exe trumpswk.ini winsock.dll

Back to your original question... When you edit your "hosts" file from
the trumpet directory, you might need to re-start your trumet
icon/session for the changes to take affect (I'm not sure, but it can't

Good luck...
