Disclaimer: I haven't Googled this yet.
I have a Galaxy Tab running kernel 184.108.40.206. It's on an unrouted wireless network, along with a laptop. The laptop's running Openfire, and I'm going to pull down an XMPP client for the tablet.
XMPP, however, tends to be a giant pain in the ass w/o DNS, since it builds it's chat rooms lilke email@example.com. With an actual DNS server it's no problem, and on windows I'd normally just add a line to the hosts file.
How do i go about doing that in Android? Basically I want to make 192.168.1.10 (or whatever) always resolve to somename.somenetwork.local. I know I could stand up a DNS server, but I'd like this to be as lightweight/easy to deploy as possible.
If you root it, you can treat it like any other Linux install, pretty sure you can do a similar procedure as you'd do in Windows... Not that I have any idea where the hosts file resides on Android
Also, eww Galaxy Tab
