Changing hostname in AmigaOS 4.1 Update 6
« on: July 11, 2014, 09:45:16 AM »
I've tried changing the 'Name' under 'Hosts' in Internet Preferences as well as adding an id =whatevername field to DEVS:/NetInterfaces/VIA-RHINE. It's still stuck as 'localhost'.

If it sheds more light, it's also unable to resolve hostnames of other machines such as 'mymacmini.local', says they're unknown.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Check Devs/Internet/Hosts.

127.1           pegatron        pegatron

It shows the hostname I set in Internet Prefs.
