I’ve been trying to figure out how to map a DNS name to an unlisted publicly hosted server for running integrated SDK tests against. Instead of getting the desired result, I get some strange result with a URL that seems to be somehow related bitcoin mining when searched on google.
The log goes something like this and I can’t quite figure out what’s going on. The fact the IP address shows up appended to another URL when attempting to ping is strange. Initially I thought it required a space or line feed but that doesn’t appear to help.
Add test server host name
Run ECHO %NEWLINE%^184.108.40.206 example.org>>%WINDIR%\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
debug dns name to make sure ip is assigned
Run ping example.org
