[GLLUG] alias for host name?
Tue, 16 Jul 2002 11:37:37 -0400
I have a laptop that gets a DHCP IP address when plugged in at MSU.
Along with the IP number, it also gets assigned a hostname. While this
hostname is reasonable (pilotusername-N.user.msu.edu), I'd like to be
able to refer to the machine using a different name from other computers
So on my desktop, I'd like to be able to refer to the notebook with a
short name (say "laptop"...). Is there a builting way of doing this, or
would it require some custom scripts?
