    Setting up hostname in Snow Leopard

    My Mac Mini runs with Snow Leopard OS and right now I just want to know from where we can setup the particular hostname? I am not able to find that hostconfig file as like in Windows where the hostname is set. Then where it is done? Can someone explain?

    Re: Setting up hostname in Snow Leopard

    Yes, we can setup the hostname for the particular domain from the Sharing option. Just follow the steps as given below,

    STEP 1: Open the System preferences window.

    STEP 2: Now select the Sharing tab -> Uncheck the padlock at bottom.

    STEP 3: Where it will ask for Admin password -> Provide the right details and choose the Edit option.

    STEP 4: And from the above you can see there is a particular option which says “Computer Name” which is the host name -> Go ahead and change it to the one which you desire from there.
