I want to set my hostname. I have two NICs. One is used for the internet and the other is used for my LAN.
I want my hostname to be "Neusoundz"
I am confused as to which IP to set as my hostname. Should my /etc/hosts file look like this:
OR should it look like this:
Does it matter? When I issue the "hostname" command
I want the output to say "Neusoundz", but it keeps saying Neusoundz.Shnockered.net
How do I get my host name set as just "Neusoundz". I don't want the ".Shnockered.net" part to be included.
I have been struggling with this for a long time and noone seems to know why my hostname includes my domain.
I even tried doing this:
hostname "Neusoundz" but as soon as I open another terminal or or logout and log back in, my hostname mysteriously resets itself back to "Neusoundz.Shnockered.net
CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME?!?
