NmcSocks is a free SOCKS proxy that will allow you to resolve Namecoin hostname. It can chain its connections into another SOCKS proxy, primarily to allow Tor/I2P interoperability.
Moreover, NmcSocks can also be used as a DNS server to resolve .bit domains specifically. See examples below.
NmcSocks is designed to run side-by-side with namecoind, and its default settings will "just work" out of the box.
NmcSocksalso has a number of command line switches to fine tune its behavior.
NmcSocks is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux. Binaries for the Windows and Linux platforms are available on the project's homepage.
Detailed instructions on how to install and use the NmcSocks utility on your Mac are available HERE.
