View Full Version : SlimServer hangs at startup trying to access DNS server

I have a hosts and an lmhosts at that location,
both with localhost entry. It doesn't seem to
make a difference in this case. But I am happy
now because letting the router handle DNS works
for me.

I really appreciate the help.

Easy fix. Put

127.0.0.1 localhost

in your hosts file. On Windows, that would be
\WINDOWS\System32\drivers\etc\hosts on your system drive. If you've
never done anything with hosts, it may not exist or it may be named
hosts.sam.
