Question

There's a FreeBSD section here and I bring this up because your post is in the Linux Newbie forum.

Have you looked at the FreeBSD Handbook that is a link in my signature?

You have to be logged in as root and the command is as follows:

Code:
hostname <machinename.domainname.whateveritis(com/org/net)>
If you just want to change the "localhost" as it's referred to in some unix systems, which is the name the local system or machine will be seen as locally and on the network unless a virtual host is setup for it.

So if you just want to change the machine name, type the following again logged in as root:

Code:
hostname <name-you-want>
