PoshHosts

0.2.0

Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 12/17/2018.

PoshHosts is a Cross-Platform module that allows you to control the hosts file from the Command Line.

Installation will install the module for PowerShell, and PowerShell Core (if it is installed).

Features

  • Control the hosts file from the command line
  • Support for host profiles, useful for local environments
  • Test entries in a hosts file by pinging them - even with specific ports
  • Display a diff between two host files
  • Support for environment sections in host files
  • Support for RDPing onto servers via host entries
  • Ability to open the hosts file from CLI (notepad on Windows, Vi on Unix)

To install PoshHosts, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install poshhosts

To upgrade PoshHosts, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade poshhosts

        .SYNOPSIS
            The hosts commands allows you to control the hosts file
    
        .DESCRIPTION
            The hosts commands allows you to control the hosts file, by adding/removing entries; as well enabling/disabling them.
    
            Hosts also supports profiles, so you can have a developer hosts file in your repo and import/merge it for developers.
    
            You can also test the entries by pinging them, either using the normal ping or by passing specific ports.
    
        .EXAMPLE
            hosts add 127.0.0.3 dev.test.local
    
        .EXAMPLE
            hosts export ./local.hosts
    
        .EXAMPLE
            hosts test *.local 80, 443

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
