Mac OS X Hostname

February 24th, 2007

Following up on the recent post about setting proper fully qualified domain name and hostname settings in linux, I'm doing the same for Mac OS X.

So far I've found different techniques:

OS X Faq has one technique, seems a bit dated though, since they use pico

This more recent post confirms that technique of setting Mac OS X hostnames via /etc/hostconfig

I made the change but no effect yet. I am running Tiger, so maybe that is a problem. Perhaps a restart (GASP!) will help.
