    etc/hosts is the shortcut, you will need to add yourself permissions in ETC that is embedded in the private folder,

    Default Here's what I did...
    I had to:
    Open Terminal
    "sudo su <ENTER>" (You'll have to provide your machine password)
    "cd /etc <ENTER>"
    "pico hosts <ENTER>" (I like to use vi but you may not have any idea what that is)
    Add a line like this:
    "74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com"
    Save the file
    Quit the editor

    Test it by pinging "gs.apple.com"

    ping gs.apple.com <ENTER>
    PING gs.apple.com (74.208.105.171): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 74.208.105.171: icmp_seq=0 ttl=54 time=7685.039 ms

    If it points to 74.208.105.171 then you added the line to hosts correctly. If it goes elsewhere, try again and for god sakes, don't run a restore!

    Hope this helps
