@wizards, I am not sure what you mean by "to name" .. because there can be various meanings for that. Can you clarify?

It could be DNS -- how you can "name it" in the browser -- you can create an alias under Setup > Network > Aliases to call it anything you want, say, "yomama" ... and you will be able to access it as

Code: Select all

The host name for your system can be anything you want. Mine is called "rome". This does not generally affect DNS. It's just the "name" of the host (some apps use this, e.g. Amahi Time Machine to show the "device" name; it's also visible when one uses ssh, but that's about it).

It could be what you use in SAMBA .. e.g.

Code: Select all

This is controlled by entries in /etc/samba/lmhosts. At the moment only \\hda and \\files is supported. This file is automatically generated and we do not currently support adding names dynamically. it's a relatively non-trivial feature request, but maybe we can implement it (quickly if enough people like it). a bug in the tracker for this (under platform) would be best, if this is what you meant.

Or many you meant something else?

Thanks for clarifying.

Thanks for the quick replies. It was the samba name I was thinking of. The same question was asked in this old post:


Thanks for your help.
