NAMO - Preferences

  • Automatically start / stop DNS Server:

    • No
      Enable this option if you want to start or stop the DNS Server manually. This can be done in the main window by clicking the start/stop button.

    • When NAMO starts / quits
      Activate this option if the DNS Server is to be started or stopped when NAMO is launched or shut down.

    • On system startup
      Enable this option if you want the DNS Server to start at system startup. It remains active until the system is turned off.

  • Automatically resolve Hosts:

    • From hosts file (/etc/hosts)
      Select this checkbox to automatically resolve all hosts from the local hosts file (/etc/hosts).

    • MAMP Viewer hosts from MAMP PRO
      Activate this checkbox if you want all hosts from MAMP PRO that are configured for display in the MAMP Viewer to be resolved automatically.

  • DNS Forwarding
    Activate this checkbox to continue accessing external Web pages from devices that use NAMO as their DNS Server. By default, the DNS Server of the Mac running NAMO is entered here. However, you can overwrite this entry and add as many DNS Servers as you like.
