    You add an entry to your local hosts file with this domain. It will work then, no matter what DNS service you are using.

    ok I ran into a few problems handling that request

    1. The process cannot access the file because its being used by another process (running in admin mode)(trying to save)

    2. all I have is the host name, I dont have access to the actual ip address just the domain name will that work instead?

    3. If not is there a work around?

    1. Take a copy of the file, modify it, and copy it back in.

    2. You do need the IP address too. Disable OpenDNS to the situation where you can use the domain, and find out the IP address with a DNS lookup.

    3. You don’t use OpenDNS if it works then.
