    How can I set up routes on my Droid

    I have CM7 and OpenVPN installed on my Droid. I can establish a VPN tunnel and get an IP address from my office. In a terminal emulator, I can do
    ssh user@10.x.x.x
    and log into my server. What I want to be able to do is
    ssh user@host
    and also to click through links in e-mail notifications from our Trac system (e.g.,
    ). I tried editing /etc/hosts but it seems to be on a read-only file system. How can I make my Droid know my hosts by name?

    I think you are on the right track with /etc/hosts, it is just not letting you edit the file because /etc is mounted Read Only. You can su to root in Terminal then cp /etc/hosts /sdcard, then edit the /sdcard/hosts file with your internal info and save the file back to /etc/sdcard. Now use Root Explorer to mount /etc/hosts RW and copy your new hosts over.

    It may be easier to just edit your hosts file with a root enabled file explorer like Root Explorer depending upon how big your hosts file is.
