CPolydorou.HostsFile Powershell Module

Hello everyone,

I just published a Powershell module I've developed that helps updating the hosts file.

Adding an entry in the hosts file can help you troubleshoot a certificate, a service that is not included in the DNS systems or directly use a service without excluding it from the DNS or the Load Balancer.

The CPolydorou.HostsFile module contains function to add, remove, comment and uncomment entries in the hosts file. Administrator permissions are required in order to modify the file, so Powershell has to be run with elevated rights. You should also have .NET 4.5 installed.

More information about the module can be found here, along with installation instructions.
