    Network configuration file


    Hi there,

    Where is text file "Network configuration" located?

    I would like to change "Host"
    and "Domain" that was set with "sysinstall".

    My current "Domain" is "il.comcast.net"

    so I tried
    find / -name "il.comcast.net"
    without success.

    Thanks

    I'm assuming you're using FreeBSD. In this case, check /etc/rc.conf

    Going through FreeBSD installation process(sysinstall )
    I entered "dell" for hostname.

    My FreeBSD machine is connected to internet through router
    whose ip is "24.12.126.5"

    When Installation was finished and after GNOME login screen I got en error:

    "Could not look up internet address for dell.
    This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly"

    I somehow found a web site that would tell me that my hostname is:
    "c-24-12-126-5"

    I changed "hostanme" in "/etc/rc.conf" file
    , restarted my FreeBSD machine and error was gone.

    Is there a command to find out what is my "hostname" supposed to be
    and I do not mean
    c-24-12-126-5 # hostname that just tells me hostname set in
    "/etc/rc.conf" file.

    Thanks
