Manual entries in hosts file are automatically commented out
Laragon 4.0.15 on Windows 10
I'm trying to manually enter into Windows hosts file, a few hosts of my local network (192.168.x.x), but they get automatically commented out (a hash # sign before host's entry)!?
Does Laragon control hosts file?
Thanks for any advice!
@jobet : No, Laragon only takes care of lines contains "Laragon's magic"
I send you attached 2 screenshots, of what happens to Windows hosts file...
You should see the 3 hosts 192.168.x.x now with a # sign in front of each line...
Is there something wrong in the hosts file syntax maybe?
Found it! it was my new antivirus (Bitdefender).
It scans hosts file and automatically comment out any IP address in these ranges:
10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255
The only solution is to set hosts file read-only....
