"An awesome program"

November 22, 2014  |  By satyr

 |  Version: CIP 5.00 SR7

Pros

It does what it's supposed to do (resolve hostnames in the "hosts" file to IPs), and it does it fast.

Cons

There are actually no cons that I could think of.

Summary

As mentioned above, CIP is simply an awesome "hosts" file manager which does its job (resolve hostnames to IPs) very efficiently. It's also very small in size. Simply put, the CIP program is flawless!

"HELPED ME"

August 03, 2003

 |  Version: CIP 5.00 SR7

Summary

I think this is a good App. It helped me since I am on a Dialup.
I run 98SE and my browser IE6SP1.
It was easy to use until the "hosts" file that is located in C/Windows is in conflict with my browser. Could not open some sites and my ISP links.

"If you want to do a wild goose chase.."

January 08, 2003

 |  Version: CIP 5.00 SR7

Summary

So what can I say? I spend two days trying to figure out why the GD (which could stand for something else) Transfer function would not enable itself, per the instructions. I see, from all the negative press, that a second program is needed to make CIP function fully. I would have gladly paid some nominal fee to have the whole thing working. Not having the GD Transfer function significantly reduces functionality. I am hopeful the creator will consider making that change, and charging $20 for it. The time I’ll spend manually adding and deleting URL’s from the CIP will far exceed the benefit of how fast it connects me. I’m irritated that the instructions, even with its inserts, doesn’t articulate how to do the ‘/Auto’ instruction in the command line (where ever that is), leads one to believe the GD Transfer should be available for use, and finally and most irritating, is the fact the web site has no contact support, knowledge base, discussion group, or a clarification section where discrepancies like this can be addressed. They call it customer support, which this site www.radsoft.com obviously lacks. I find it interesting that each time someone submits a sobering opining, someone submits a rebuttal with all 5’s. Hmmm. Creator should bundle the GD Transfer with the CIP software and sell if for $20.

"What's the point?"

December 26, 2002

 |  Version: CIP 5.00 SR7

Summary

The real strength of a DNS cacher is monitoring your internet activity and automatically making the changes to your hosts file. With this useless program, it's all manual. And it'll only cache your favorites. The cherry topping this poop sundae? There isn't even an uninstall program included. Don't waste your time.
