I already have new hostname as me but still the server see my machine as the old user.
Can anyone tell me what to do so that it was me who will appear?
It sounds like the problem is it recalling the last remote
host to connect to it, rather than the local hostname. Should be able to clear that pretty easily by just... logging in from another host, no?
