View Full Version : Host Name?
02-20-2002, 08:36 AM
I don't know if this is really a specific Unix question, but is there a way to change the host name? I accidentially got stuck with "Mi And's Computer" which I think sucks.

system preferences [ sharing ] Computer Name : [ thisldo ]
that'll prolly resolve your issue
as root, edit /etc/hostconfig and assign a reasonable hostname at the line HOSTNAME=xxx
sudo cp -p /etc/hostconfig /etc/hostconfig.dist # save the current dist'd version
sudo pico /etc/hostconfig
# This file is maintained by the system control panels
# Network configuration
