Holger, thanks for the reply. The problem I am having is with the above
instructions - I tried to do this, but I am told that I must dial the
internet to connect / this site is not available offline. My questions are:
how do I map to the project specifically? I want project1 to have
project1/cgi-bin/ I don't have a c:\windows\hosts file, only hosts.sam which
says it is a sample file, and changing it hasn't done anything.
To make myself clearer: I want to have http://localhost as the local test
location for my real site, heagy.com and have atleast one or more
http://project1, http://project2 which I can use to test my projects. You
mentioned this was possible. The GUI mapper doesn't ask which host the
mapping belongs to, so how do I make c:\projects\project1 to map to
http://project1 and have c:\projects\project1\cgi-bin\ map as CGI for
http://project1 only?

I really appreciate your help. Thank you very much.
